An America's Cup Evolution

It's easy to become overwhelmed with the AC72 action (the drama, the crashes), but this America's Cup Discovered video reminds us why we love it in the first place. Lots of great old footage in this, and awesome interviews.

From the AC website:  Get invited to spend a day on the water with Ted Turner as he reforms his 1977 victorious 'Courageous' crew to commemorate this win 35 years ago. We then take a leap into the future to see how some of the technology has evolved in our sport since those Newport, Rhode Island days. The award winning LiveLine team bring impressive graphics to our screens and make watching sailing an enjoyable and understandable experience. Do the competitors like sailing by lights and being umpired by a computer?
