HISTORY

1851 – 1983

1851 – 1983

In 1851, the American schooner “America” won the regatta

around the Isle of Wight off the English coast, leaving the

15-strong British fleet in its wake. And so the America’s Cup

was born.

1983 – 1987

1983 – 1987

Australia II defeated the American yacht “Liberty” to win the

America’s Cup in Newport, becoming the first challenger to

seize the America’s Cup from the Americans in 132 years.

1987 – 1995

1987 – 1995

With Stars & Stripes, the Americans avenged the loss at

Fremantle in 1987. The Cup returned to the United States

once more, with the match held in San Diego in 1988. The

America’s Cup was held again in San Diego in 1992 and

1995. In this last event, the New Zealanders claimed their

first victory in the history of the America’s Cup with “Black

Magic”, bringing the Cup to New Zealand.

1995 – 2003

1995 – 2003

The America’s Cup was held in Auckland in 2000 and was successfully defended by the New

Zealanders against Luna Rossa. The next edition in 2003 was won, once again in Auckland, by the

newly-formed Swiss team Alinghi, who brought the Cup back Europe after an absence of 152 years.

2003 - 2010

2003 - 2010

The Swiss took the event to Valencia and in 2007 Alinghi

successfully defended the trophy, to subsequently lose it to

the Oracle Team USA trimaran in 2010.

2010 - 2017

2010 - 2017

Oracle Team USA brought the Cup to San Francisco for the 2013 event on board the revolutionary
