America's Cup History

The history of the America's Cup dates back well over a century and a half to 1851 when the Royal Yacht Squadron held a race around the Isle of Wight which was won by a schooner named the America. Shortly thereafter the trophy was renamed the America's Cup in honor of the ship and was donated to the New York Yacht Club in 1857 where it remained for years as no challenger was able to defeat the NYYC until 1983 when the Royal Perth Yacht Club won the trophy with the ship the Australia II and ended the longest winning streak in the history of sports. The New York Yacht Club had successfully defended the trophy 25 times before finally falling to the Royal Perth Yacht Club. The America's Cup is currently held by the Golden Gate Yacht Club who last successfully defended the trophy in the 34th America's Cup in 2012 against the Royal Perth Yacht Club. The Golden Gate Yacht Club had to achieve an incredible come from behind victory in which they won eight straight races to defeat the Golden Gate Yacht Club 9 points to 8. The next attempt for the Golden Gate Yacht Club to defend the America's Cup is slated to take place in 2017 when Team Oracle USA will take on the qualifying team.


The Experience

There is no other sporting event on the planet that quite matches up to a world class sailing race. The chance to spend a gorgeous day out in the sun at an unbeatable seaside location is always an excellent proposition, and it only gets better when you can also enjoy some intense competition. Since man first took to the sea proving one's mettle as a sailor has been one of the most noble efforts. Racing ship against ship is a long-running tradition and is as exciting and important to sailors and lovers of sport today as it was when the first sea race took place centuries ago. Big time races like the America's Cup raise the level of intensity another notch and create for an atmosphere that is hard to equal. Millions have watched the America's Cup on television, but watching from home is nothing compared to being there to witness all of the action in person, no matter how great your home entertainment system is. One trip to the America's Cup is sure to turn you into a race fan for life and leave you anxiously awaiting the next opportunity to attend the America's Cup.


Sailing

The tradition of sailing dates back centuries to when empires sought to expand and prove their dominance by conquering the sea, sending their bravest men out into the unknown to discover and conquer new lands. For centuries battles at sea proved which countries held dominion over others. These days yacht clubs and designers set out to prove that they are among the best in the world by participating in big time races like the America's Cup and the Detroit Gold Cup, both of which attract fans by the thousands to the shore to take part in all of the excitement. In recent years the popularity of sailing has continued to grow with more and more events being televised, and as the Summer Olympics draw ever closer interest in the sport will only increase. Whenever an American yacht club like the Golden Gate Yacht Club is in possession of the America's Cup, sailing fans in the United States are even more inclined to root for their home country in a show of national pride.


Trivia

In 1987 the Royal Perth Yacht Club took the America's Cup from the New York Yacht Club for the first time, but the trophy did not stay outside of the United States for long as the San Diego Yacht Club won the trophy back the following year behind the speed of Stars & Stripes 88. In 2000 the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron won the trophy from the Americans who did not reclaim the trophy until 2013 when the Golden Gate Yacht Club recaptured it.
