In August, 1851, the yacht America, representing the New York Yacht Club, won the Royal Yacht squadron's 100 pound Cup.
The trophy was donated to them under a deed of gift, which stated that the trophy was to be "a perpetual challenge cup for friendly competition between nations." Thus was born the America's Cup.
Since then, the race has travelled around the globe and has evolved in terms of technical and professional performance from one generation to the next.
