AMERICA CUP RACER
STERLING SILVER BERMUDA ICONS
It was announced on December 2nd, 2014 that Bermuda would host the 35th America’s Cup presented by Louis Vuitton. America’s Cup is the oldest trophy in international sport and an event that has been going strong since 1851. The next evening the island saw an amazing euphoria from revelers in the streets of Hamilton as the “Auld Mug” was unveiled at a number of venues and it seemed there was an instant optimism island-wide. At the time, it was controversial that the Defenders of the Cup, ORACLE TEAM USA, would hold the race outside of the United States. But for Bermuda with its strong maritime history and the United States is its closest neighbor, it made perfect sense our tiny 22-square mile island should host the challenge.
