Dive into the struggles behind the 34th America's Cup in the first of this six-part series.

Go deep behind the scenes of the America's Cup sailing event in the 'No Second Place' video series; in episode one above, learn about the stunning power of the AC72 boats as the crews ride a razor-thin line where the smallest mistake can mean the end of the race -- or even worse.

Learn about the teams competing as the six-part series progresses; Oracle Team USA will be defending their title with New Zealand, Italy and Sweden doing everything they can to take over the top spot. All of the hard work and training culminates with the America's Cup Finals in San Francisco on September 7-21.
