  • Description

    Australia's newest challenger for the coveted America's Cup trophy recently held its first sea trials.

    SYNOPSIS: The aluminium-hulled yacht was launched at the Sun City Marina at Yanchep north of Perth, Western Australia, to begin trials for the Cup. Preliminary races against other challengers will be sailed at Newport near New York in August. The yacht's co-designer, Bob Miller, was at the helm for the trials. The yacht and its crew will leave for the United States in about three months for final preparations. Half the money for the boat is being put up by Alan Bond, the unsuccessful America's Cup challenger in 1974. Afterwards, Bob Miller spoke about the new yacht's first sea trials.
