    Despite Ainslie's disappointment, he also admits that organisers were right to cancel Sunday's event

  • No racing today at Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series Portsmouth, gale force winds meant Super Sunday was cancelled. But a great result on the water yesterday meant Ben & the team at Land Rover BAR took the trophy home. It was fantastic to have Their Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge support the team in Portsmouth. A great first step to #BringTheCupHome

  • Fantastic conditions today for racing, two solid results by Ben and the Land Rover BAR team to put them top of the leaderboard after two races. Speaking onshore after racing Ben said, "I couldn’t ask for anything better, fantastic conditions, so many people coming out to support the team, it’s just brilliant.”

  • Two practice races today in shifty, gusty and all-round demanding conditions, great work by Ben and the crew today as they delivered a race win and a third place. Tomorrow starts with the Land Rover BAR live show from the Flight Deck at 11 (UTC+1), and racing begins at 1.15pm (UTC+1). Watch today's live show's here: http://bit.ly/ACWSPortsmouth

  • "There are five men on the high side of the boat, ripped like boxers and kitted out like stormtroopers. They’re leaning back, feet tucked under a webbing strap, 10ft above the Solent on the edge of a catamaran that can sail three times faster than the wind...” Read Giles Whittell’s behind the scenes experience with Ben and the Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing team at their new home in #Portsmouth and sailing on-board the foiling AC45 in today’s The Times and The Sunday Times magazine and online here http://thetim.es/1LXFysa
