This is a replica, built in 1995, of the yacht America. The eponymous trophy was named in honor of the first yacht to win the race, which was around the Island of Wight in 1851.

This photo was taken of America in front of the Golden Gate Yacht Club in San Francisco, current home of the America’s Cup trophy.
