Louis Vuitton News

May 2013 – Louis Vuitton and Abrams released on May 2013 an updated edition of The History of the Louis Vuitton Cup. This gripping account on the America’s Cup early days and Louis Vuitton Cup adventure, which became a saga over the last 30 years, is announcing the 2013 America’s Cup San Francisco series.

Since 1983, the Louis Vuitton Cup has been a rite of passage for yachters looking to challenge the defending champion of the America’s Cup, the world’s most prestigious sailing competition. Over the years, the instrumental role of Louis Vuitton has transformed what was once a friendly contest between sportsmen into a gripping competition that has sparked an international media sensation. Paying homage to the exceptional navigators and avid photographers who helped forge the reputation of the Louis Vuitton Cup, this book offers an impassioned account of the competition’s inception and development, and a closer look at the landmark races in the regatta’s history. Profiles of some of the world’s most talented yachtsmen capture the gripping drama of the contest, from strategy to stunning win to unforeseen, against-the-odds defeat.

Updated throughout to cover all of the significant events since the book’s initial 2008 publication, this edition includes more than fifty additional images and pages, offering a comprehensive look at the thrilling world of sailing competitions today. Complemented by navigational charts, race circuit maps, and boat and sail design illustrations, The Louis Vuitton Cup is an unrivaled all-access pass to the saga of one of the most coveted trophies in the world.

With the expertise of Bruno Troublé – who has the idea for the Louis Vuitton Cup in 1983 –, and François Chevalier – naval architect and journalist –, this book appeals to sailing enthousiasts.
Available in French, English and Italian, The Louis Vuitton Cup is proposed in a limited edition exclusively for Louis Vuitton stores.
