The CITIZEN CUP 1992 The U.S. A. were the official defender of the AC. Since two syndicates sponsored by the San Diego Yacht Club, competed for the defence, a Defender Selection Series  had to be organized to determine the  Defender of the AC. The event got its name from the Japanese watch maker and sponsor CITIZEN
