What is the America’s Cup?
The America's Cup is the oldest trophy in international sport, dating back to 1851, when the schooner America, for which the trophy is named, beat the best of the British fleet in a race around the Isle of Wight. The trophy won on that day was donated in trust through a Deed of Gift and has since become an iconic symbol of achievement.
