VIDEO: Golden Years of the Admiral’s Cup

Published on July 5th, 2017

The Admiral’s Cup, considered to be the unofficial world championship of offshore racing, was an international keelboat regatta based at Cowes on the Isle of Wight off southern England. The biennial event started in 1957 and was competed for between national teams, but was last held in 2003 as it struggled for support.

Here’s a tribute video from Stephen Lirakis that captures moments from 1969, 1971, 1973, and 1975.
