Yachtsmen and women are a special breed, and none moreso than those who love to follow or be part of the America’s Cup, the oldest and most prestigious sporting event in international competitive sport. The best minds in sailing technology and the best sailors from around the world engage in a continuous effort to build and sail the most elegant, ultimate racing machines possible. Using only the wind for power, the America’s Cup races are the pinnacle of “green” energy!

The first race took place in 1851 when the most prestigious yacht club in the world, the Royal Yacht Squadron, challenged the newly formed New York Yacht Club. To the astonishment of the 15 British competitor ships, the yacht “America” crossed the finish line 15 minutes ahead of all others. The US schooner sailed back to the states with her prize, a 27” solid silver trophy cup (which in typical Yankee fashion they renamed “The America’s Cup”), and then managed to defend and keep it for the next 132 years, the longest winning streak in the history of organized sports!

Since the devastating US defeat in 1983 by the yacht “Australia II,” every four years the cup has bounced around from Australia back to the US, then to New Zealand, then to Switzerland, and then back again to the US, currently held by the Golden Gate Yacht Club, which will be defending it next in September of 2013.

For the yacht lovers, here is one representative ideal racing machine for your nautical pleasure!
