The Dalton-led New Zealand team went to Valencia to win back the America's Cup. They beat 10 other challengers to win the Louis Vuitton Cup and the right to challenge for the Cup in an unprecedented 5-0 series. In a thrilling encounter with Alinghi they were beaten by just 1 second in the seventh race. In battling to the end, the whole team showed what New Zealand sailors are made of - and they made us proud. Valenzia captures all the triumph and tragedy of their hard-fought campaign in the most fiercely contested America's Cup ever. Includes action photographs, statistics and detailed coverage of every race from the Louis Vuitton races until the final of the America's Cup.
