The Seawanhaka International Challenge Cup is the oldest yachting trophy, originating in America, which remains in active competition. First raced in 1895, the Seawanhaka Cup trophy was offered for the purpose of promoting small yacht racing and developing the Corinthian spirit among yachtsmen. The very first challenge in 1895 was sailed in the fifteen-foot “Seawanhaka Rule” class, between Seawanhaka’s Ethelwynn and Spruce IV from England’s Minima Yacht Club. Minima returns this year to challenge for the Cup for the first time since 1895.
