On 26 September, 1983 the crew of the yacht Australia II won the elusive America’s Cup, a trophy held by the New York Yacht Club for 132 years. It was a day of celebration and jubilation at the Royal Perth Yacht Club and across the country.

Australia II, with her infamous winged keel, is now on display at the Western Australian Maritime Museum.
