On the crest of a wave with Sir Ben
More good news for Portsmouth as details have been released of two America’s Cup regattas coming to the city in 2015 and 2016.
Olympic sailing hero Sir Ben Ainslie’s British America’s Cup team will be among the teams racing in the Solent in the prestigious events.
The regattas are part of the America’s Cup World Series being held worldwide in the lead up to the competition’s grand final.
Each of the teams taking part in the World Series will host two regattas in 2015-2016 with the winner earning the right to face defending champions USA in a head-to-head showdown for the ultimate America’s Cup prize in 2017.
The Portsmouth regattas are being held on July 23 to 26 next year and in 2016 from July 21 to 24, and will pass just 50m from the seafront at Southsea.
Hundreds of thousands of visitors are expected to pour into the city for the four-day festival.
Some 120million will be pumped into the local economy, according to the Portsmouth News.
