First offered by Chicago Yacht Club in 1915 to encourage competition between the club and eastern yacht clubs. The first club to accept the challenge was Indian Harbor Yacht Club of Greenwich, CT. Addison Hahan skippered the P Class yacht Josephine to victory for IHYC and the cup went to Greenwich. In 1946, at the suggestion of IHYC, the competition was reinstated using Luders L-16s and continued for eight years.

In 2014 the event was restarted in Shields. The 2014 event was held on Lake Michigan (Chicago, IL) and won by the Monterey Yacht Club (Shields Fleet #7). The 2015 event was held in the Pacific Ocean (Monterey, CA) and won my the Beverly Yacht Club (Shields Fleet #10).

See list of winners (1915 to 1953) and list of winners (2014 to present).
