    Background: The "Valiant" a possible American contender in the America's Cup yachting series, was launched last week at the port of Mamaroneck, Long Island, in the State of New York.

    The America's Cup, the most famous classic in yachting has been won by America every year since the first event in 1851. The American "Valiant" is being readied for the race. Designed by the New York firm of Sparkman & Stephens, the Valiant also belongs to a New York syndicate. Her hull frame is of laminated oak, while her deck is of plywood covered with fibreglass. Her mast is of Titanium and aluminium.

    There are also two foreign contenders this year for the coveted trophy. The "Gretel II" of Australia and the French racer "France". Gretel II's predecessor, Gretel I, was defeated in 1962 but this will be France's first entry in this classic contest.
