Cronkite Report - 1987 America's Cup

Taking us back to the turning point:

In 1987, sailing enthusiast and CBS News Anchor Walter Cronkite hosted an in-depth look at the competition for the 1987 America's Cup. The 2-hour show includes some amazing footage, insightful interviews, and of course the reporting thoroughness and style that made Cronkite an icon of American television.

To celebrate Walter's contributions to American sailing on this occasion, the NSHOF website is now featuring a two-part series entitled 'America's Cup: Cronkite Reports' where he chronicles, race by race, the 1987 America's Cup campaign, a watershed event in Fremantle, Western Australia.
