Sailing - Ainslie loses to France in setback to America's Cup hopes

Sailing - Ainslie loses to France in setback to America's Cup hopes

There were protestations of "no way" and "completely rubbish" on the Swedish catamaran.

However, conclusive defeats to Oracle Team USA and Emirates Team New Zealand left Ainslie's team looking off the pace again, having shown great improvement to beat Artemis in their opening match of the America's Cup Qualifiers. Artemis was flagged for a port-starboard violation at the mark and had to slow just as it approached the finish li.

"It is just a shame we couldn't repay them in the races today".

Mr Winfield said, "Bermuda has celebrated the day we've all worked so hard toward, the first day of hosting the largest global event ever staged on Bermuda soil". While Artemis Racing responded with a covering move early, they allowed a split further up the leg.

US enjoyed a great day on the water as they won all three of their races, while the French team recorded their first victory by beating Sweden's Artemis. Still, there were nine lead changes on the seven-leg course.

"We were a bit shocked when the blue light came on", he said.

It was not all bad news for the USA crew, however, with a win in the head-to-head between former team mates Jimmy Spithill and Land Rover BAR skipper Ben Ainslie.

"You need room coming in at 40 knots", Emirates Team New Zealand helmsman Peter Burling said.

A near-perfect second day of racing has put Team NZ in the driver's seat at the America's Cup qualifier series off Bermuda.

"It was foiled back so we didn't take too much water on".

But while Land Rover BAR showed good speed, the US crew's tactician Tom Slingsby made a shrewd call on the third leg of the seven leg course and Oracle Team USA were able to pass their British opponents and produce a convincing win. After the round robins, Oracle will practice on its own while the challengers sail their semifinals and finals.

But returning to Land Rover BAR's first race against pre-race race favourites Artemis Racing, Ainslie's crew dominated. Well have a look at the racing tonight and come out firing tomorrow.”.

Artemis has rallied from a devastating blow in 2013 when Percy's Olympic partner Andrew "Bart" Simpson died in a sailing accident in San Francisco before the last America's Cup.

The Swedes are 2-3, alongside Team Japan and Team France, while Britain's BAR are 1-4. The top four teams will advance to the America's Cup Challenger Playoffs. Outteridge and fellow Artemis crewman Iain Jensen won the gold medal in the 49er class in the 2012 Olympics, with Burling and fellow ETNZ sailor Blair Tuke taking the silver.

Tactician Tom Slingsby and skipper Jimmy Spithill engineered a split at the bottom gate, but the windshifts went in favor of Artemis Racing, who extended its lead one the first upwind leg to 19 seconds.
