BRIEF HISTORY During the early years of the New York Yacht Club, racing for prize money was the primary objective of most members. In 1851, a syndicate of NYYC enthusiasts built and raced America and captured the One Hundred Sovereign Cup at the annual regatta of the Royal Yacht Squadron, Cowes, England. In 1857, the trophy was donated to the NYYC, renamed the Americas Cup, and thus was the beginning of the Americas Cup races as we know them today.
