America’s Cup

Two of TMG’s security staff provided executive level protection at an America’s Cup event in Charleston, SC. Their protective service detail was the security of the America’s Cup Trophy. Here is a little background on the trophy:
The America’s Cup is unique and iconic as sailing’s most prized trophy, and transcends sport.
It is the oldest trophy for international competition in any sport.
Since 1851 sailors, business, entrepreneurs, designers, sailmakers, riggers, and boatbuilders have invested emotion, funds, dedication and dreams into winning it.
Only six yacht clubs in the course of three centuries have managed this: New York Yacht Club, Royal Perth Yacht Club, San Diego Yacht Club, Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron, Societe Nautiqe de Geneve and Golden Gate Yacht Club.
By way of comparison, the America’s Cup predates:
1882: The Ashes (England v Australia cricket)
1892: Stanley Cup (North America ice hockey)
1896: Modern Olympics
The trophy was made by the London company, Garrard, the world’s oldest jeweler. Garrard has been a royal jeweler since 1735. Garrard has served six successive Monarchs of the United Kingdom since 1843 from Queen Victoria onwards.
It is also linked to some of the world’s most famous gemstones including the Koh-I-Noor, Star & Africa and Poltimore Tiara.
Garrard has a long association with great sporting events. It is responsible for the Webb Ellis trophy for Rugby’s World Cup, soccer’s Premier League Trophy, tennis’ US Open Trophy, horse-racing’s Dubai World Cup, the ICC Cricket World Cup.
Garrard itself was founded in 1735, though the company traces its origins back to 1722 when George Wickes first registered his Mark at Goldsmiths’ Hall, London.
