Good luck to Sir Ben and team Land Rover BAR in the America’s Cup World Series off Southsea this weekend.
Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to head down to watch the thrilling racing and join in the fun from today to Sunday.
Olympic legend Sir Ben will be vying to take the British team to the sailing competition’s elite finals in Bermuda in 2017.
Land Rover BAR are going up against Emirates Team New Zealand, Oracle Team USA and Artemis Racing of Sweden for the right to race in the finals.
Spectators can turn up and watch from Southsea or buy a ticket to a separate Race Village around Southsea Castle.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to attending prize-giving ceremonies over the weekend too.
This year’s extravaganza includes breathtaking aerial displays by the Red Arrows.
As a local business, it’s great to see such a high-profile event come to Portsmouth – both in terms of benefit to the local economy from visitors and for the profile of the city.
We always champion the city when we can and hope the World Series is a fantastic success.
The Portsmouth News has an excellent website devoted to the America’s Cup at http://americascup.portsmouth.co.uk/ which is well worth visiting for all of the latest updates.
Good luck Sir Ben and team Land Rover BAR.
