America’s Cup off to London – Seven Sharp Video

The America’s Cup is off to London this week to have the two bottom bases re-furbished so that there is enough space to engrave the 2017 ETNZ victory and future results.

The work will be done at Garrards, the jeweler where the cup was originally made it 1851.
