America's Cup history is full of great moments that have made sailing what it is today. Remember that great moment when...
• Ted Turner defended the Cup at the helm of Courageous in 1977
Australia II unveiled its winged keel after defeating Liberty in 1983 
• Dennis Conner, representing the San Diego Yacht Club, won the Cup back four years later aboard Stars & Stripes
Alinghi edged out Emirates Team New Zealand by one second to win the 32nd America’s Cup in 2007?

 

Now, for the first time ever, SAIL is offering you a chance to create your own great Cup moment when you sail as the guest racer on board an AC45 catamaran in the America's Cup World Series this summer in Newport, RI, taking place June 26th-July 1st, 2012.

 

One winner will receive the Guest Race spot on board an AC45 on June 28th, 2012 (subject to weather conditions and racing taking place that day). The prize includes round-trip, coach-class airfare for one person, two night's lodging and a Winner's Package courtesy of our sponsors, which includes a $100 gift card from West Marine and a waterproof backpack from Harken.
