  • Ice Yacht Challenge Pennant of America
    The Ice Yacht Challenge Challenge Pennant (IYCP) was conceived in 1881 by Commodore Irving Grinnell of the New Hamburgh Ice Yacht Club to determine supremacy among the grand ice yachts of New York's Hudson River. The famous pennant was raced for fifteen times with the most notable winner being Icicle, owned by John A. Roosevelt, who was President Franklin D. Roosevelt's uncle. 1922 was the last year the Hudson River stern steerers competed for the IYCP because they lost access to the ice when their race course became a shipping lane kept open by the Coast Guard. Thanks to the foresight of the New Hamburgh Ice Yacht Club and the Eastern Ice Yachting Association, the Ice Yacht Challenge Pennant remains relevant 135 years later. The rules were adjusted to affirm the speed evolution in American ice yacht racing spanning the majestic Stern-Steerers of the 19th century to today's high-tech carbon fiber Skeeter class iceboats.
