About The Poster:

America's Cup trivia: America's Cup, affectionately known as the "Auld Mug," is a sailing trophy awarded to the winner of America's Cup match races. One yacht, known as the defender, represents the yacht club that currently holds America's Cup and the second yacht, known as the challenger, represents the yacht club that is challenging for the cup. The timing of each match is determined by an agreement between the defender and the challenger. America's Cup is the oldest international sporting trophy.  

Franco Costa died in March 2015, and he was the official America's Cup Artist.
