It has captured the imagination of the millions who like watching nations, yachts and individuals compete in a race where everyone starts with a realistic chance of winning.

The skill and strategy is in finding the quickest path around the Americas's Cup course and each skipper 'tacks' and 'gybes' his yacht to capitalise on favourable wind shifts that increase boat speed through the water.

The constant changing of direction is an essential strategy to take the opportunities to forge ahead of the competition and cross the finish line in a blaze of glory.
