    Default America's Cup--- 1983

    There is a new documentary now playing on Netflix about Australia's 1983 win. This was the year that the New York Yacht Club wish had never happened. We found it to be quite interesting. It brought back a lot of memories and filled in a lot of blanks for me.

    The show...... Untold: The Race of the Century

    Other sites may also be showing it, but I don't know that for sure.

    Thanks for that! I enjoyed Bertrand's book....have to see if I can find the film. I don't have Netflix but maybe someone around here does.

    Will have to check it out. That was the summer after my freshman year in college and I was driving launch and managing the moorings for Oldport Marine - although we lost the cup - what a great summer. A nice turn around to my story was that I travelled to Australia after graduation and raced from Hobart to Freemantle and was there to see Dennis win it back! (sorry to my Aussie mates)
