For over 150 years, the America’s Cup has been the premier prize as yachtsmen have been pitted against sailors from around the world in an effort to win this prestigious race. The race takes its name from the champion schooner America, which was created due in large part to the efforts of NY Yacht Club founder, John Cox Stevens. This history comes to life with descriptions of the yachts, the races & the colorful personalities of those who longed to capture the greatest prize in yacht racing.
