If you have not followed on the finale of the America’s Cup World Series you would be pleased to know that Ben Ainslie has led the Brit team into a stunning finish and gained victory over their opponent US team.
The final race that was concluded in the last week of July 2016 saw the Brit team finish with victory. This was achieved in the leg of the race that was done in Portsmouth. The series ended on a Sunday.
The finish was a thrilling one as the Land Rover team BAR edged out their rival team from the US, the Oracle team from the US. They had been the defending champions for the America’s Cup. The venue was a Solent where the Royal Yacht Squadron from Britain beat the Schooner of New York Yacht club, a 30 meter vessel about 165 years when the regatta started initially.
Indeed, there had been much ado made about the regatta and the schooner replica has been recreated as well to promote the America’s Cup and to increase its popularity in modern times, before the party moves on to Dubrovnik, courtesy of partners Croatia Bareboat Charters.
Queen Victoria called upon the best yachts to compete in a race that is held around the Isle of Wight and this was about 34 challenges before. Since then the Auld Mug had not returned to Britain. However, this year Ainslie has been able to bring back their lost glory to the country.
As the duke and duchess of Cambridge took their seats to cheer the boats the Olympic champion who has claimed the medals, four times, was able to do the honors to the hash-tag for the event, bringthecuphome. The country can dare to dream again as they prepare for the final showdown that will take place next year. The victory was indeed a thrilling one for all to watch.
