AC exhibit opens in Palm Beach

ADVERTISEMENT

A new exhibit on the history of yacht racing is on display at Flagler Museum in Palm Beach through Jan. 6. “Capturing the Cup: Yacht Racing During the Gilded Age” shows the history and popularity of the race through paintings, movies, and artwork. It includes the America’s Cup trophies made by Tiffany in the 19th century, and a piece of wood from S/Y America, the yacht that won that first race in 1851, according to a story in the Palm Beach Post.

The museum’s namesake, Henry Flagler, owned sailing and steam yachts and attended regattas, though he did not sail. He owned the schooner S/Y Columbia, the successful 1871 America’s Cup defender.
