The America’s Cup is named for the first boat, the America, to win a sailing competition which was first held around England’s Isle of Wight in 1851. The schooner represented the New York Yacht Club, which went on to win every running of the race for the next 132 years, until a skipper named John Bertrand, backed by the Royal Perth Yacht Club and sailing a boat called Australia II, defeated Dennis Conner in 1983. By the time of the next America’s Cup race series, in 1987, the New York Yacht Club had found a new skipper, John Kolius, and a new boat, the America II, to take back the trophy. All they had to do was win a playoff competition that would determine who would challenge the defending Royal Perth Yacht Club. Conner, not to be left out, secured the backing of the San Diego Yacht Club and commissioned a boat called Stars & Stripes 87. With it, he beat Kolius and the New York Yacht Club, meaning their vaunted America II, which we saw sailing on the Hudson River on Sunday, would never challenge the Australians. Conner would, though: He beat them four races to none.

"John Isner, the highest-ranked American man, defends American culture to European players when the tour rolls through Mason, Ohio—the tournament’s home for the last 35 years—assuring them that baseball is interesting and that the food is delicious. “I always say Carrabba’s has great Italian food to a couple of the Italians, and they look at me and laugh,” he said of another restaurant in Mason. “I still stand by that. I don’t know, I think it’s easy. Everybody has their own car, it’s easy to drive here. You’re not fighting awful traffic and mopeds and all sorts of the stuff in Rome.”"
