About the America’s Cup

The America's Cup is the oldest trophy in international sport, dating 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 symbols of achievement.

The America's Cup is currently held by the Golden Gate Yacht Club in San Francisco. On September 25, 2013, its team, ORACLE TEAM USA, completed the biggest comeback in sports to retain the trophy it had first won in 2010.

Details and rules for the 35th America's Cup will be issued in 2014.
