About the New York Yacht Club American Magic
Formed in October 2017 by Bella Mente Racing, Quantum Racing, and the New York Yacht Club, American Magic represents a joint vision to win the America's Cup, the highest prize in sailing and the oldest trophy in international sport.
New York Yacht Club American Magic brings together two highly successful racing programs with the most prestigious yacht club in the world. Both are united by a determination to regain the America's Cup, reconnect the American sailing base with the premier event in the sport, and elevate the quality of competitive sailing in the United States.
The name, American Magic, is a nod to the New York Yacht Club's storied America's Cup history; a combination of the boat the trophy is named for, and the first boat to defend it.
