Limited-edition book chronicles America's Cup history

“An Absorbing Interest: The America's Cup – A History 1851 – 2003,” a two-volume limited edition by Bob Fisher, proved to be the publishing success of 2007.

The coveted slip-case edition has become a collector's item such as the original “History of the America's Cup” published in 1901. All copies of “An Absorbing interest” were quickly snapped up and now, due to constant demand, the decision has been taken to reprint a further 500 copies.

This “An Absorbing Interest” charts the history of sailing's most enigmatic and greatest prize. In two volumes it covers the drama, boat design, personalities and fascination of the America's Cup, from 1851 in Cowes to 2003 in Auckland. It is illustrated with photographs, cartoons, paintings and figures and can rightly claim to be the definitive history.
