  • It was a tough way to end the 2014 Extreme Sailing Series in Sydney for Ben and the BAR team at the weekend “The guys worked incredibly hard but it didn’t go the right way for us in the final race which was really frustrating. “I would like to thank the shore team, commercial team and sailing team for all their hard work this season. “We’ve developed a lot from racing on the Extreme Sailing Series and this will undoubtedly help us towards our goals in the America's Cup"

  • Ben and the Ben Ainslie Racing team have touched down in Sydney for the final of the 2014 ESS and today Ben visited the Laureus supported project, Football United, joining local youngsters from many different backgrounds on the pitch. ‘It was great to visit the kids at Football United and see a Laureus project in action. The lessons of sport, whether it’s football or sailing, are the same: it’s about teamwork and achieving potential’

  • Today Bermuda was announced as the venue for the 35th America's Cup Here's Ben's thoughts on the decision: “It’s great to have the venue confirmed for the 35th America's Cup and Ben Ainslie Racing look forward to moving forward with their campaign," "Either would have been fantastic venues but as a British team, we are obviously looking forward to going to Bermuda. "The weather and conditions make it a great challenge for the teams, you look at the wind charts and one day it might be six knots and the next it might be twenty, so we can expect a lot of variety from the racing! #AC35 #BringTheCupHome

    The next America’s Cup will be raced in Bermuda in June of 2017. The host venue was confirmed at a press conference in New York on Tuesday by Harvey Schiller...
