Maritime Productions presents another from its video library of America's Cup and other sailing video, available on a rent to view basis.

After losing the America's Cup in 1983, and being spurned by the New York Yacht Club to led its team to win the America's Cup back off Australia, Dennis Conner turned to his friends in California, and the San Diego Yacht Club.

That move started a series of new chapters in America's Cup history.

Here is your chance to see the video of one of the great stories of the America's Cup, sailed in arguably the best venue - Freo.



From the Maritime Production Collection you can revisit that unique occasion in America's Cup, sailing and indeed world sporting history.

To revisit the good times, to hear and see all the great moments and characters of the era - just rent the video.

You can see a free preview below, along with some of the images of the day.

Maritime Production's exhaustive America’s Cup library includes the America3 Foundation Collection of 1992 and 1995 Louis Vuitton & America’s Cup, the exclusive collections of America’s Cup by John Biddle, The Cronkite Report, the Uhl Collection, the archives of the famed Mystic Seaport: The Museum of America and the Sea, at Mystic, Connecticut, as well as films acquired and produced by America’s Cup aficionado Keating, for over 25 years.

All of this material is now available for the first time in full High Definition (HD), most transferred from the original 16mm and 35mm film to HD by Peter Jackson’s state-of-art Park Road post-production laboratory in Wellington, New Zealand. Park Road’s credits include the 'Lord Of The Rings' trilogy, 'The Hobbit', 'King Kong' and 'District 9'.

Much of this material is part of the huge private America’s Cup collection of Mr. William I. Koch, America’s Cup Hall of Famer, who successfully defended the Auld Mug in 1992 with his ground-breaking IACC yacht, America3. Mr. Koch is lending a part of that unique collection to America’s Cup Events Authority for display in the America’s Cup Park throughout the 2013 America’s Cup event in San Francisco.
