The Schooner America In GreenportDon’t miss the schooner America in Greenport this summer – June 8th through the 10th, 2016 – as this beautiful tall ship, a replica of the schooner responsible for America’s Cup tradition, visits ports along the East Coast!
The original America was a 19th-century racing yacht made famous by besting all her British competitors during the August 22nd, 1851, One Hundred Sovereign Cup regatta around the Isle of Wight. America, representing the New York Yacht Club, passed the Royal Yacht in first position to win the 53 mile race by 18 minutes.
