John Bertrand is a famous yachtsman, businessman and philanthropist who is most famous for leading the crew of the yacht “Australia II” into victory in the 1983 America’s Cup. This victory was legendary due to it being the very first time that a non-American team won the cup, ending the one hundred thirty year reign of American yachtsmen in the competition. John also won the bronze medal at the 1976 Summer Olympics Finn competition, making Australia well-known in the world of yachting. He is known to be among the best yachtsmen in the world today.
