The America's Cup has always been a hotbed of intrigue, spying, cheating, double-dealing and hard-fought court cases--before the boats even get on the water. Beneath the Sheets is a unique look at the larger than life powerful opponents in the America's Cup of the modern era, from 1977 to the present. Set against some of the most acrimonious and litigious battles in sporting history, this expose of wealthy team owners and competitors is a compelling glimpse behind the scenes at the real America's Cup, brought alive by quotes transcribed from 92 in-depth interviews produced and directed for a TV series by Larry Keating.

This book candidly approaches issues the opponents faced. The interviews expose the emotions, the battles, the espionage, intrigue, and the ebb and flow of point and counter-point won and lost on the water and in the courts. It highlights how respect can turn to hate all too quickly as the points are made and decisions stall or accelerate circumstances.

Readers will enjoy a transparent view of how these extraordinary individuals of fame and fortune can still show their human qualities, their passions, aspirations, nerves--and the one quality we all relate to: confronting one's fears in the quest to be the best.
