“Your Majesty, there is no second.” – This is what Queen Victoria’s aide told her when she asked who came in second place after New York Yacht Club’s vessel, aptly named America, sailed past the Royal Yacht in 1851. From that fateful day on, the schooner America continued to beat other powerful yachts for over 100 years.
When the New York Yacht Club donated the 100 Guinea Cup under a Deed of Gift in 1857, the trophy’s name was changed to America’s Cup. The America’s cup is considered as the most elusive racing boat trophy which makes it even more coveted and prestigious. Since the race started in 1851, only four countries have won the illustrious and oldest trophy. This includes the United States, Switzerland, New Zealand and Australia.
