About this Item

500, [4] p. Includes: illustrations, diagrams, index. Glossary. Most illustrations in color. The challenge offered by the America's Cup is both ambiguous and darkly formidable. It is a comprehensive test of resources, technology, tactics, and ingenuity. It demands both business acumen and a crew of athletes. The cup is a best-of-seve series of two boat match races. The America3 syndicate grew to more than 200 people and cost more than $68 million to field the winning craft and crew. Very good in very good dust jacket. DJ is in a plastic sleeve.

About this title

Synopsis:

Here's the inside story of sailing's most comprehensive test of resources, technology, tactics, and ingenuity. Never before has an America's Cup syndicate put such an emphasis on the use of science to design and build a racing yacht. Never before has the same scientific method been used to select and train a crew. Never before has such a de-emphasis been placed on the so-called "rock stars" of the sport.
To the Third Power puts the reader inside the America[superscript 3] compound, beside the testing tanks, next to the wind tunnels, and on board the fastest sailboats ever built. It provides a rare glimpse of the personalities and emotions that made up the 1992 defense of what has become yachting's "Holy Grail."
