The Little Cup began as a technical and sporting challenge launched by Great Britain against the United States in the early 1960s. It is now the International C-Class Championship, and far more than just another sailing competition: it is a veritable leading-edge technology laboratory that develops the fastest sailing boats in the world.

Handsomely illustrated with photographs, maps and over a hundred sets of plans dating from the early days of the competition to the present, this book presents the races, the people and the new technologies that have evolved over the course of the 26 championships, demonstrating the sailors' insatiable desire and unremitting search for ever-greater speed.
