The match racing event was sailed this past weekend, June 16-17, in Oyster Bay, New York. According to the Seawanhaka Corinthian YC, The Seawanhaka Cup is the oldest yachting trophy originated in America that is still in active competition. Originated in 1895, the Seawanhaka Cup trophy was offered for the purpose of promoting small yacht racing and developing the Corinthian spirit among yachtsmen.

In August 2005, SYC held the Seawanhaka Cup when hurricane Katrina destroyed the clubhouse in New Orleans.  The original trophy was never recovered.  Seawanhaka Corinthian YC commissioned an outstanding, full-scale replica from Langfords in London. The new trophy was completed and delivered to Seawanhaka in time for the 2009 competition.
