The 1980 America's Cup was held in September 1980 at Newport, Rhode Island. The US defender, Freedom, skippered by Dennis Conner, defeated the Australian challenger, Australia, skippered by James Hardy. four races to one. This was the last successful defence of the cup by the New York Yacht Club and the last defender designed by the naval architectural firm, Sparkman & Stephens. It was the sixth unsuccessful challenge by Australia and the third by Alan Bond. Freedom had beaten Courageous and Clipper to become the defender. Australia had beaten France III, Lionheart and Sverige to become the challenger.
John Edwin Bertrand AM (born 20 December 1946 in Melbourne, Victoria) is a yachtsman from Australia, who skippered Australia II to victory in the 1983 America's Cup, ending 132 years of American supremacy. Bertrand won the bronze medal in the Finn competition at the 1976 Summer Olympics inMontreal. He is a member of Royal Brighton Yacht Club in Melbourne Australia, and currently competes in the Etchells class boats. He has been married for many years to Rasa Bertrand, whom he met as a student. When Turner was 26, he entered sailing competitions at the Savannah Yacht Club and competed in Olympic trials in 1964.He appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated on July 4, 1977, after being chosen to lead the 1977 America's Cup defense as skipper of the yacht Courageous.[49] He had purchased the boat after its 1974 America's Cup victory.On September 18, 1977, he successfully defended the America's Cup, defeating Australia 4-0.He was inducted into the America's Cup Hall of Fame in 1993,and the National Sailing Hall of Fame in 2011. In the 1979 Fastnet race, in a storm that killed 15 participants, he skippered Tenacious to a corrected-time victory. In order to ensure that racing tested the skill of the sailors more than the boat technology, criteria were dictated which competing boats had to meet in order to be qualified to race. From 1958 to 1987, the "12-Meter" Rule was used to ensure that similar designs competed for the America's Cup, while still encouraging yacht designers to balance several key design factors in order to produce the fastest boats possible. Freedom was the last of the S&S twelves, successfully defending the America's Cup in 1980. The design was a winner - but the race is remembered for more than the victory. On the first of the five races of that contest, sailed in a shifting, 10 knot easterly,Freedom suffered the indignity of having her rudder linkage break on the second windward leg. On the next downwind leg, lack of rudder control proved no large problem, as the skipper (Dennis Conner) could steer with the trim tab. But for the final upwind leg, it was necessary to try wrapping a line around the rudder post and leading this to a genoa winch. Steering by this winch device and the trim tab proved manageable but clumsy: Freedom was forced to feather upwind and to make a major operation of each tack. Nevertheless, her crew performed these maneuvers with such skill that Conner, after winning the race, saw no need to mention the breakage. Instead, he dodged questions about why he had sailed the final leg the way he did, admitting only that his tactics had been 'unorthodox.' Thus developed a theory that the canny skipper was really holdingFreedom back in an effort to conceal her real speed." Sparkman & Stephens is a naval architecture company specialising in designing boats. Sparkman & Stephens Inc was formally created on November 11, 1929, with five partners: Drake Sparkman and his younger brother James Sparkman, James Murray, and brothers Olin J. Stephens and Roderick Stephen. Their designs have won most of the major international yacht races such as the America's Cup, for several decades, including a string of victories in the Fastnet and Sydney to Hobart races. S&S has a number of custom yacht design projects as well as being designers for boat builders such as Nautor's Swan, Grand Banks Yachts, and Morris Yachts. With more than 100 units built, the S&S design #1710 also known as Swan 36 became the most utilized design in the history of Sparkman & Stephe
