Event Details

Sailing’s top prize, the America’s Cup, will be back in the USA for the first time since 1995 after having been won by Larry Ellison and his sailing team this past weekend.

Saturday morning, a public viewing for the 159-year old trophy is planned at the San Francisco City Hall Rotunda. At 11:30 am Mayor Gavin Newsom will formally welcome the Cup and team – including team owner Larry Ellison – back to the United States in a City Hall ceremony open to the public.

The America’s Cup is a trophy awarded to the winner of the America’s Cup sailing regatta match, and the oldest active trophy in international sport—predating the Modern Olympics by 45 years.
