COURAGEOUS yacht model
America Cup's winner in 1974 and 1977
 

Courageous won the America's Cup twice, in 1974 and 1977.  In the history of America's Cup, only three boats have achieved this distinction: Intrepid in 1967 and 1970, and Columbia in 1899 and 1901.  All these three yachts were from the NYYC.

Courageous won the America's Cup for the USA in 1974 with Ted Hood at the helm. When Hood built a new boat which he thought was faster than Courageous, he sold Courageous to Ted Turner. During the defender trials for 1977 America's Cup, Turner beat Hood, and then went on to successfully won the America's Cup later that year.

Courageous was donated to a Museum in 1997, Courageous was designated as Rhode Island's State Yacht.  In July, 2002, she was restored to her original configuration.

Both Courageous and Intrepid are still sailing and racing today in Newport.
