Juno (GBR), Admiral's Cup 1991
This blog provides an interesting collection of photographs of IOR racing yachts from the late 1980s and early 1990s, compiled by a keen English yachtsman who has been busy converting his original print archives to electronic files. There is a particular focus on a range of international yachts that competed in the 1989 and 1991 Admiral's Cup, the prestigious offshore team's racing trophy sailed from Cowes and which was once acknowledged as the unofficial world championship of offshore racing (won by New Zealand just once, in 1987).  The collection includes a couple of the New Zealand champion One Tonner, Propaganda, which had been a member of the 1987 NZ team that finally took the trophy in 1987.
