The event, based in Hawaii, began in 1978 and is raced every second year. It carried the name Clipper Cup however in 1986, when a new sponsor was found, the series became known as the Kenwood Cup. The contest has evolved to the classic five-race format: two 27 mile Olympic course races; the 150 mile windward-leeward Molokai race from Honolulu to Maui and back; a 27 miler; and the testing 775 mile Round the State race. New Zealand held the trophy in 1987.
