Young America 2000

Young America 2000

Young America was designedby FARR YACHT DESIGN and sponsored by New York Yacht Club to challenge Team New Zealand.

Young America was overcome with technical and structural problems during the challenger trials and was forced to abandon. She was eliminated before the semifinals began. Although the Team met with technical difficulties, we believe that Young America is one of the most strikingly beautiful America’s Cup Challenger in 2000.

We could have been forgiven for thinking for a moment that the impossible was possible, without really believing in it, but no: Intrepid was not chosen to defend the Cup in 1974. But the venerable old wooden Twelve very nearly beat the new aluminium Twelve Meter to defend the Cup for the third time in succession ! But there was no miracle.

Courageous, the  new Sparkman & Stephens aluminium Twelve finally beat Intrepid, the old S & S wooden Twelve, considered to be the fastest of her era.

Dave Pedrick was closely involved with the design of the new candidate. Courageous only took shape after numerous tank tests. The line of the boat were less radical than those of Intrepid or Valiant: Courageous seemed more conventional in her design and nearer the lineage of Vim or Columbia. In fact, the new boat was a splendid compromise, with her full, soft lines, and she was still quite light.

In 1974, Courageous easily beat the Australian challenger Southern Cross. This was Olin Stephens’ fifth success in the Cup since 1958.
