Winging It : Oracle Team USA's Incredible Comeback to Defend the America's Cup

By Diane Swintal, Steven Tsuchia, Robert Kamins
2014
The most amazing comeback in sport left millions wondering just 'How did they do it?'

The answers come together in Winging It, with insights from naval architects and builders on their radical boat designs, the consequences of racing these untested boats, and explanations of how the foils and wingsails work. The book explores the impact of events that led up to the Cup, including how a sudden capsize threw the entire event into doubt before the 2013 America's Cup ultimately delivered an epic finale. Top sailors share their stories, including the victorious Jimmy Spithill on USA 17 and the shockingly defeated ETNZ skipper Dean Barker.
