The oldest trophy in sports will be making a special appearance this weekend in Dana Point.

During the Dana Point Yacht Club’s Open House, the America’s Cup will be on display beginning at noon.

The America’s Cup was first contested in 1851, and is one of the most competitive and sought after trophies.

John Berry with the Dana Point Yacht Club said the America’s Cup does not usually travel, unless it’s going to its home club or to America’s Cup events.

“We’re very fortunate to be able to have the cup here,” Berry said. “This is a unique experience.”

The cup will arrive at the yacht club at noon under Marine Corp. escort along with Golden Gate Yacht Club Commodore Norbert Bajurin.

The Golden Gate Yacht Club will give a special presentation at 2 p.m. There will also be exhibits and membership tables set up.

The shuttle and the event are free and open to the public.
