TEAMORIGIN Seeks To Fulfill 156 Year Quest

TEAMORIGIN marks the 156th Anniversary of the America's Cup by asserting its intent in becoming the first British representatives to win the 'Auld Mug'.

August 22nd, 1851 marked the schooner America's victory for the Royal Yacht Squadron's 100 Sovereign Cup, later to be named in recognition of its first holder.

It is this event which gives its name to the British challenge for the 33rd competition. Read more about the anniversary on TEAMORIGIN's official website, here.
