Description

The America's Cup in 1903 was a date in history that confirmed boating was no longer a gentleman's game - it had become a race entangled with political tension and dangerous stakes. In this pivotal year, the two great rivals Britain and America raced head to head, with Britain determined to win with their privately funded Shamrock III, and America's bravado backed up by Reliance. Reliance was a yacht like no other - a work of beauty carrying more sail than any single-masted boat before.Some believed that the boat towering 190 feet above the water was simply too dangerous, but the race called for such staggering risk.Pastore brings life to this strikingly astounding vessel from conception, to construction, to the hair-raising trials at sea. A real page turner documenting the most exciting and true to life tales of the sea.
