Golden Era of America’s Cup Revisited

NEWPORT, R.I. (September 17, 2015) – Nothing lights up local waters like the 12 Metres from the Golden Era of America’s Cup racing, and next week six of the sleek historical yachts will sail on Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island Sound in the 12 Metre North Americans sponsored by Bai. Just like during Cups held here in the ‘70s and ‘80s, visitors to Bannister’s Wharf can catch the fleet and racing teams dockside before and after racing on Friday, September 25 through Sunday, September 27, and those with the means by which to get on the water can indulge in a breathtaking ballet presented by these beautiful boats that are lovingly restored by owners who consider themselves privileged caretakers of the past.
