About this title


Here's the inside story of sailing's most comprehensive test of resources, technology, tactics, and ingenuity. Never before has an America's Cup syndicate put such an emphasis on the use of science to design and build a racing yacht. Never before has the same scientific method been used to select and train a crew. Never before has such a de-emphasis been placed on the so-called "rock stars" of the sport.
To the Third Power puts the reader inside the America[superscript 3] compound, beside the testing tanks, next to the wind tunnels, and on board the fastest sailboats ever built. It provides a rare glimpse of the personalities and emotions that made up the 1992 defense of what has become yachting's "Holy Grail."
