Rare documentary footage of the 1967 Admiral's Cup has been discovered in the archives at Whitstable Yacht Club. It is in colour too!

The club believes that this was a film that was sent to select yacht clubs by the event sponsor, to be shown to members - Whitstable must have been lucky enough to receive a copy and have kept it safe all these years.
