This week on America’s Cup Uncovered Episode 43, we travel to the historic, deep water seaport of Newport, RI, which for 53 years was the home of the America’s Cup. The legendary J Class raced three Cups there in the 1930s. After World War II, the 12 meters raced eight Cup matches there until Australia II ended America’s 132-year winning streak in 1983. Excellent archival footage of both the Js and the 12s brilliantly documents the boats and the characters – the romance and intense competition – of that bygone era.
With Newport closing out the first season of the AC World Series on June 28-July 1, the show reviews the eight AC45 teams competing for the title.
