This video is from the CYCA…

Rare documentary footage of the 1967 Admiral’s Cup has been discovered in the archives at Whitstable Yacht Club.

It is believed that this film was sent to select yacht clubs by the event sponsor, to be shown to members. The film takes a look at some of the greats from the CYCA including Caprice of Huon, Belandra and Mecedes III taking up the challenge.
