Date: Sunday, August 30th
Time: 11:45am - 3:30pm
Place: Golden Gate Yacht Club

Without exaggerating, America is the world’s most famous racing yacht. It is also one of the most beautiful yachts in the world. The reason is simple—America put yachting on the map. It is why the most famous trophy in sailing is called the America’s Cup.

In 1851, America won the Royal Yacht Squadron’s 100 Guinea Cup given to the winner of a race around the Isle of Wight. It is said that the margin was so great that while watching America sail past the royal yacht, Queen Victoria famously asked, “Who came in second?” The reply was, “Your Majesty, there is no second.” The winners—members of the New York Yacht Club—donated the trophy to the NYYC to be held as a challenge trophy. Thus was born the America’s Cup (named after the yacht, not the country). There aren’t many yachting stories as exciting as the 95-year history of America. By her demise in 1945, America became one of the most honored vessels in U.S. history.

Resurrected by maritime historians in 1995 at a cost of more than $6 million, our magnificent sailing vessel is a perfect replica of the original yacht America.

America's specifications:
•   Length: 139 feet
•   Weight: 226,000 pounds
•   Mast height: 105 feet (main mast)
•   5,900 square feet of sail

Join Dartmouth Silicon Valley members, the Harvard Club, and guests as the America’s Cup launches its U.S. tour of America leading up to the 2017 America’s Cup races in Bermuda. The tour is designed to highlight the technologies that have elevated the sport to its present state. Alumni and their guests will enjoy a wonderful summer afternoon sail aboard America as it sails around picturesque San Francisco Bay. Light food and beverages are included.
