On this day in 1987...

...Cup legend Dennis Conner won the America's Cup in Fremantle, Australia.

It was the last time an American challenger won the Cup, although American teams successfully defended in 1988 and 1992.

Team photographer Gilles Martin-Raget was there and shot these images, and team meteorologist Chris Bedford was in Fremantle, working at his first America's Cup for DC.
