The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series returned to Portsmouth over the weekend, with Ben Ainslie’s Land Rover BAR delighting the crowds with a dramatic victory to take the top spot in the overall leader board by a single point.
The home team won three out of six races across the weekend to make it three World Series wins out of seven so far.
Speaking after the conclusion of the racing, Ainslie said: “The reaction from the crowd was amazing and it’s like they now really appreciate what it would mean to bring the America’s Cup back home.”
