The National Capital Chapter is honored to offer our members a once-in-a-lifetime experience and proudly be the only BMW CCA Chapter hosting the America and the America's Cup Tour!  "The America" is a historically accurate schooner that will give attendees a chance to sail back in time aboard a painstaking replica of the original "America," which in 1851 stunned the world by winning the legendary sailing race around the Isle of Wight and won the trophy that now bears her name, the America’s Cup!

In 1851 a radical looking schooner ghosted out of the afternoon mist and swiftly sailed past the Royal Yacht stationed in the Solent, between the Isle of Wight and the south coast of England, on an afternoon when Queen Victoria was watching a sailing race.  As the schooner, named America, passed the Royal Yacht in first position, and saluted by dipping its ensign three times, Queen Victoria asked one of her attendants to tell her who was in second place. “Your Majesty, there is no second,” came the reply.  That phrase, just four words, is still the best description of the America’s Cup, and how it represents the singular pursuit of excellence.

We hope you will gather up your finest mates and join us for an amazing day in Annapolis!
