MANLY ANTIQUE CENTRE
The New York Yacht Club had upto this point successfully
defended the cup over a period of 132 years, the
longest winning streak in sporting history.
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 finally beat the Liberty in a nail biting
finish that famously all of Australia stayed home
from work to watch with the 'permission' of the then
Prime Minister Bob Hawke.
This poster as stated covers up until 1962 and
showcases the designs of many of the contenders
over 111 years and their designers as well as the
race courses amongst other things.
It is very a informative large poster framed and
under glass measuring 107cm x 77.5cm.
The poster itself was 'Prepared by Motor Boating'
- not sure who this is.
Have done an extensive internet search and haven't
been able to find another like it.
