I well remember my stay at the Viking Hotel at Newport Rhode Island, by the sounds of the merry-making on the night they won the Cup

- it seemed that the Aussie crew had decided to take over the hotel!

Australia II that was launched in 1982 and won the America's Cup for the Royal Perth Yacht Club.

This victory was due largely to the yachts unusual keel; a brilliant new design by Australian Ben Lexcen.
