History, 1957 - 1999

 

From 1957 to 1999 the cup was competed for between national teams, each having three boats. Initially, only Great Britain and the United States took part, but in later years, many other teams also participated.

 

The Fastnet race was part of the Admiral's Cup during this time. In 1971, British Prime Minister Edward Heath captained one of the winning boats.
