This awesome tee commemorates one of the America's Cup sailing competitions that took place in Newport, Rhode Island. Sometimes called Auld Mug, America's Cup is the oldest international competition still active in any sport, predating the modern Olympics by 45 years. The competition isn't held annually, rather it is held whenever the competing yacht clubs organize a time to meet. The event was held in Newport from the beginning of the 1930s to the end of 80s, and New York Yacht Club won every cup until 1983 when Australia won. The next cup was subsequently held near Perth five years later.

Fits like a modern unisex adult small. Repair on the front, see pics.
