400 page visual history of a series of sailing match races between C-class Catamarans from the top sailing nations beginning in 1961.
We want to compile a visual history of what is called ‘The little America Cup’ It is a challenge race series for sailing boats of one class only The Class C catamarans
we are asking you to back the production of a book - a book with every page covered only in drawings - a book full of and about sportsmen - a book full of information about sailing catamarans - a book full of technical details - all in pictures
it is a history full of beauty - it is packed with action - full of drama - compassion - love of a sport - at the very edge of its technology - it is a history of a passion for boat speed - it has the highest level of competition and every form of sporting excitement
because the series is at its turning point - it will become all new and be full of development or be side stepped and end - it is the one year in three years of a contest and this year it is back in England for the first time since 1969 - soon the knowledge of the early racing will be lost because of age - some of these sailors who were Olympic winners have now died

Why I/we will succeed:
Firstly I know our prospective clients:
We have sailed and raced a large number of different beach catamarans and I know the industry as well as my fellow sailors.
I owned and ran beachcats.com from 1997 to 2010 - so most of the research has already been completed.
I am a successful program manage & I have been a architect design program manager consulted to a number of major companies such as British Airports Authority, THF, Citibank and what is now JP Morgan Chase and I am working with people who have successfully managed projects for animations and filming of advertisements
So you can be sure that the costings are accurate and the dead lines will be met.
from the start to finish will take 9 weeks - we have a program.
So we will send out the First books in April 2013
