According to Fourth-Place Medal:

For those of you who haven’t been following the America’s Cup, Oracle Team USA is the reigning champion, and will be looking to defend its title at the 34th competition starting in September 2013. The America’s Cup is the oldest international competition trophy, with the first competition taking place in 1851. Next year’s race will be held in San Francisco Bay, which clearly is not playing the genial host just yet.
