Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Photographer Edwin Levick, who was considered the official photographer of the New York Yacht Club, captures the spirit of the public moments of America's Cup races and also the quieter times behind the scenes. His b&w photographs, together with the text by Jobson (author and television sailing commentator), provide a picture of the turbulent battles and elegant boats that evoke the sensibility of the early years of the 20th century.
