    By George Miller

    The  America, a beautiful replica of the boat that gave The America’s Cup its name, is at the visitor’s dock at Pacific Corinthian Yacht Club as this is being written.  She will be available for your inspection on Wednesday, July 15.  There will be tours, a ride aboard and a dinner event (see below). The yacht is on a West Coast America’s Cup tour, which will take her all the way up to the pacific Northwest. Please note that the 1 PM sail has been canceled, but the other events remain.

    The yacht America defeated the British in 1851, to begin an amazing record of success for American cup entries, at least until the last few years when strong challenges from teams representing other countries provided more of a threat to American supremacy.
