One of the great moments in sporting history - the successful
Australian Challenge for the 1983 Americas Cup, when for the first
time in over 100 years the Cup was prized from the New York Yacht
Club. The film includes Australia II's design and construction
of her controversial 'winged keel'. The historic America's
Cup series against the American Yacht Liberty is covered with
live on board sound and vision during the races.
The high emotion of the final race between Australia II and Liberty
is made even more powerful with the addition of the live commentary
which was beamed back to Australia. This superb film pays tribute
to the greatest series of races in sailing history.
