McMillan Cup (Mac Cup)

Mac CupHistory:  The McMillan Cup Regatta is the oldest collegiate sailing event.  Originally, the McMillan Cup was known as the Oliver Hay Trophy.  The latter, was established in 1928 by Mr. Briggs Cunningham as an event to honor a well-known Yale alumnus sailor and was retired in 1930.  The McMillan Cup was donated by Mr. Willaim McMillan of Baltimore, MD, but with the understanding that his name not appear on the cup.

As the McMillan Cup Regatta was primarily an intercollegiate large yacht racing event for the New England and Middle Atlantic states, it was sailed on the East Coast.  Up until 1950, the regattas were held at various sailing centers in New England.  After World War II, it became apparent that the competing colleges would have difficulty in obtaining sufficient boats to carry the McMillan Cup and in 1950 the Naval Academy offered their 44' Luders Yawls for Intercollegiate competition.  Since that time, the regatta is held annually at the Naval Academy.
