An extremely informative story about the inside experience of New Zealand winning the 1995 America’s Cup. Written from the point of view of Mike, an 11-year-old New Zealander whose parents are involved in the sailmaking and building of Black Magic. Lucky Mike ends up going to San Diego and seeing the racing first hand. This is a very timely book, given that the 2013 Louis Vuitton Cup races at San Francisco are on right now – and we’d like to repeat the success! Keen sailors of intermediate and middle-school age will enjoy the technical and background details, especially boys.
