The America's Cup

The History Of Sailing's Greatest Competition In The Twentieth Century

By Dennis Conner

Once a competition held exclusively for wealthy members of the New York Yacht Club, the America's Cup has undergone significant transformations in the 20th century. No longer a yachting event limited to Morgans and Vanderbilts, the race now includes boats skippered by athletes who are not among the country-club elite. In this book Dennis Connor, son of a commercial fisherman and thrice winner of the America's Cup, and co-author Michael Levitt, take readers inside the complex world of the Cup. Accompanied by vintage and contemporary photographs, the text provides a record of wins and losses and the diverse personalities who have populated the America's Cup's history.
