Historic America’s Cup yacht replica visits New Bedford and beyond

A replica of the original yacht that started the America’s Cup tradition in 1851 is coming to Massachusetts.

The 139-foot yacht America, a replica of the original America, is scheduled to visit New Bedford on Wednesday, June 1.

The original America stunned the world by winning the legendary sailing race around the Isle of Wight in England, winning the trophy that to this day bears its name.

The schooner will arrive in New Bedford Harbor and will dock at State Pier, where it will be open to the public for free dockside walk-aboard tours. A paid Sunset Sail aboard the yacht is scheduled for the evening.

The visit to New Bedford is part of a 2016 East Coast tour from the Gulf of Mexico up the Eastern Seaboard into Maine.

In 2016, the Tour will navigate its East Coast leg — from the Gulf of Mexico up the Eastern Seaboard into Maine, before tacking south through the Caribbean and on to Bermuda in 2017.

In 2015, Captain Troy Sears and crew departed from San Diego Bay as America made scheduled stops at yacht clubs, ports and other seaside venues along the Pacific Coast from San Diego to Vancouver and back again.
