The British banker and businessman Peter de Savary spent a considerable sum for the challenge and saw the achievement of the Cup as a business and not a summer sporting event. He employed altogether 50 people and organized a long and professional training and preparation period in a kind of military drill. Because of their yellow/blue striped rugby shirts the crew was called “killer bees”. Sailing for the Royal Burnham Yacht Club the Victory team built 2 boats. “Victory of Burnham” K 21 and “Victory 83” K 22. The later one raced a strong final in the LVC against Australia II but lost at the end the chance to gain back the AC for Great Britain.
