The Lipton Cup is New Zealand’s oldest yachting trophy competed for by the same class. This race is sailed in 22ft L-Class yachts which are commonly referred to as Mullet Boats. Some of the race fleet are now over 100 years old and are still very competitive.
The trophy, made by the same silversmith who made the America’s Cup, was donated by Sir Thomas Lipton who raced the America’s Cup 5 times, but never won.
The 100th race for the Lipton Cup was sailed on the 1st May 2021 - see the full report and selection of photos here.
The 101st race for the Lipton Cup Sponsored by Victoria Park New World was raced on March 19, 2022 and the report follows.
