BEN Ainslie won both races at cold and windy Falmouth Bay to take a 10-point lead over fellow Britons Ed Wright and Andrew Mills at the halfway stage of the JP Morgan Asset Management Finn Gold Cup.

The 35-year-old Olympic gold medal hopeful said: “It was a great day and really awesome sailing but hard work.

“Tactically it was hard and physically it was even harder, but I had a good day.”

The conditions are expected to be less testing tomorrow, with very light winds forecast.
