It’s All About The America’s Cup
There is no other sailing race that generates quite as much interest as the America’s Cup. Without question nothing quite encapsulates the imagination of its followers as the premier sailing event. The competition itself is actually the oldest one in sport and dates back to 1851.
History of the America’s Cup
The inaugural race was set around The Isle of Wight, England, and Schooner America ran out winners. The winners donated the prize to the New York Yacht Club under special terms labelled the “deed of gift”.
