😉Once the pinnacle of offshore competition, the Admiral’s Cup has all but disappeared from the sailing landscape. It was last held in 2003, canceled in 2001 and 2005. But, at least among the members of the Royal Ocean Racing Club and the elder statesmen in the professional sailing ranks, it hasn’t been forgotten. Eddie Warden Owen, who was appointed CEO of the RORC last winter, holds a special place in his heart for the grueling big-boat team competition. But is that enough to get this trophy back on the water? Click here to view a PDF of Ken Read’s article on the Admiral’s Cup, “Street Fight on the Solent” in the September 1999 issue of Sailing World.

[Dec. 18, 2007: As it’s looking more and more like Ernesto Bertarelli and Larry Ellison will meet for a “Deed of Gift” challenge in a no-holds-barred, 3-race America’s Cup match this coming summer or fall, we look back on the last time the Cup went through a similar situation. In 1988, Sir Michael Fay’s 120-foot monohull raced against Dennis Conner’s 60-foot cat. On the water, it was a total mismatch, Conner’s team won two races with ease, but in the courts Fay almost prevailed. The end result of the “Coma off Point Loma” was the Cup stayed in the United States, and to avoid something like that happening again, the interested parties gathered and developed the America’s Cup Class. Cam Lewis, a crew member on Conner’s cat, and a veteran of the G-Class cat circuit looks back, and forward, at the America’s Cup.](javascript:var target=window.open(‘http://www2.worldpub.net/sailingworld/podcast/SWPodcast071218.mp3′,’swpodcast’,’width=320,height=190′);)

[Nov. 26, 2007: Bob Hughes has been pursuing the Canada’s Cup trophy for the better part of a decade. After twice losing it, Hughes finally won the Great Lake’s most prestigious trophy last October. Now that he’s accomplished one of his primary sailing goals, however, Hughes finds himself with a new problem: he must now work to build the event back to its former glory. Winning it was tough, defending it while trying to improve the event may be a significantly bigger challenge.](javascript:var target=window.open(‘http://www2.worldpub.net/sailingworld/podcast/SWPodcast071125.mp3′,’swpodcast’,’width=320,height=190′);)
