The America’s Cup is without a doubt the most difficult trophy in sport to win. In the more than 160 years since that first race . A four-year programme of racing took America’s Cup racing to other European venues, drumming up interest in the event. In the more than 160 years since that first race off England, only four nations have won what is often called the oldest trophy in international sport.

An Australian syndicate representing the Royal Perth Yacht Club fielded the Australia II, skippered by John Bertrand, against defender Liberty, skippered by Dennis Conner. Australia II won the match races to win the America's Cup, ending the longest winning streak in sporting history and ending . domination of the racing series.

The most stylish thing about it is the cover!

Great reading! It contains a lot of facts from the two events from 1992 and 1995 hosted by Southwestern Yacht Club in San Diego. California.
The club recently buried a Time Capsule during the opening of their new clubhouse, and a copy of this book was inside it.
