Our Story

The North American Eight Metre story began In 1928 when the New York Yacht Club commissioned 12 International 8mR yachts from the top designers and boat yards in Europe for delivery to Long Island Sound. In 1930 the RCYC selected the 8mR to revive the Canada’s Cup match racing series for the championship of the Great Lakes - Canada versus the USA.
