Ever dreamed of sailing a real America's Cup race boat?
It all goes back to 1851 and Queen Victoria. Since then, men have spent small fortunes to win this most prestigious and oldest sporting trophy in the world. For 132 years the New York Yacht Club would not be beaten; then, in 1983 it was the Australians. They took the "Auld Mug" "Down Under" and set up the greatest America's Cup of all time. After 354 individual yacht races, it was Dennis Conner with his fabulous Stars & Stripes campaign who won the trophy and brought it home to the U.S.A.
Is this the boat you will be racing? Could be.... for this is where it is, leading the fleet of the St. Maarten America's Cup 12 Metre Regatta.
Join us to experience an adventure of a lifetime; the thrill of competition and a slice of history.
