Ben Ainslie, one of the greatest faces of British Sailing addressed to his fans and said that they should be ready to experience something they have never seen before after Portsmouth announced that they were to host two preparation races for America Cup 2017.
Portsmouth is the home of Royal Navy of Britain and will host the events of America’s Cup World Series in July 2015 and 2016. All these events are going to have a budget of £60million to the south coast city of England.
Ainslie chose his own team to base. His team is the Ben Ainslie Racing and is in Portsmouth to prepare them to challenge the owners of the Oracle Team USA in 2017 for the America’s cup. Ainslie said that the last of the ACWS was a real turner of the game and racing while sailing has been very entertaining to the crowns that were drawn towards it more and more. The new yachts are going to be way faster and exciting than the previous ones. They promise to give the crown an experience like never before when they come to cheer for them.
The deputy chairman of London Olympic 2012 organizing committee Keith Mills said that he is passionate to bring every world class sports event to Britain and he is very delighted as the America’s Cup World Series will be held in Portsmouth. He is also the founder of TEAMORIGIN Events that will be managing the races in Portsmouth. The event is not only a speculation. This will bring forth Portsmouth, Great Britain and South Coast out on the global platform and this will benefit the city economically as well as the sponsors.
America’s Cup started way back in 1851 but no there has never been a British team as winner of this oldest trophy in international sport.
