We are New York Yacht Club American Magic, U.S. Challenger for the 36th America’s Cup.
We are the successors of the sailors who first won the America's Cup in 1851 and defended it 24 times over 126 years. New York Yacht Club has challenged the current America's Cup Defender, the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, for a single purpose; to win back the Cup and bring it home to the United States of America. We will restore the passion, values and spirit that have made the America's Cup, the oldest trophy in international sports, a legendary contest between sailors and nations.
The syndicate intends to develop and support a team that will participate in the America's Cup competition and the Challenger Selection Series competitions that lead up to it. American Magic is a recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
