189 pages, well illustrated, maps, cloth, dj, very good. 8 by 11-1/2 inches. From the publisher: In this unique account of one of the world's great sporting events - the defense of the America's Cup - Bus Mosbacher, Olin Stephens, William Strawbridge and other members of the Intrepid crew and Syndicate tell in their own words the absorbing and intensely human story behind her summer of triumph in 1967 - culminating in her smashing victory over Australia's Dame Pattie. From the formation of the Syndicate (the planning began not long after the 1964 Cup Races) to the moment in September when Intrepid's bow crossed the finish line in her final victory, the reader is involved in every aspect of that great endeavor and, along the way, given a priceless store of first-hand sailing wisdom, techniques, and lore from the men responsible for the victory.
