  1. Don’t kid yourself these owners built this ship to race and race for money. When the ship arrived in England a challenge was put forth for any and all to race but no takers. A challenge was then made to the British Royal yacht club to bring any or all contenders and the stakes were quite high. If the yacht America lost the race the ship was to be forfeited to the club, If the ship won, the royal yacht club was to pay for the construction cost of the yacht. Some very interesting newspaper stories about what happened before, during and after the race can be found on the web, but you have to dig.
