Ainslie facing uphill task in America's Cup
9:51am Wednesday 11th September 2013 in Sport
Ben Ainslie is facing an uphill battle in his bid to become the first Englishman to lift the America’s Cup.
The Lymington-based Olympic legend and his Team Oracle USA colleagues are 4-1 down to Emirates Team New Zealand after the third day of racing in San Francisco yesterday.
Team Oracle were forced to call a time-out, and delay race six, in an effort to re-group.
Emirates Team New Zealand needs five more victories to win the Cup, while Ainslie and co must win 10 to retain the oldest trophy in international sport.
Racing resumes tomorrow.
