Bernie Wilson: Ainslie gets badly needed win in America's Cup qualifiers

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

QUOTE-UNQUOTE: Land Rover BAR had been struggling since Saturday, when it smashed into SoftBank Team Japan during the prestart, punching a hole in its port hull. It lost badly and nearly sank as it returned to the dock. The British crew lost to two-time defending champion Oracle Team USA and Emirates Team New Zealand on Sunday before an eye-opening loss to Groupama Team France on Monday.There are huge expectations back home in England, which has failed for 166 years to win back the silver trophy it lost to the schooner America in 1851. It would be unfathomable if the first team eliminated was led by Ainslie, who was knighted several months after winning his fourth straight Olympic gold medal, in home waters in 2012. Ainslie helped Oracle Team USA rally to defend the America's Cup in 2013 before starting his own campaign, which has the backing of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. –Bernie Wilson writing for the AP in tonight's wrap-up story of Day 4.
