Ainslie vows to bounce back after tough day at America's Cup

Ainslie vows to bounce back after tough day at America's Cup”

The first crew in each of the two semi-finals to win five races progresses to the challenger final and whoever wins that takes on defending champions Team USA for the America's Cup itself.

The British crew had come through problems of their own, after suffering equipment failure on Monday when part of their wing controls broke and they had to forfeit two races to their New Zealand opponents.

The crash happened during the fourth race when Team Land Rover of England was competing against Team Fly Emirates of New Zealand.

Team New Zealand skipper Peter Burling said it's "never something you want to look across at your competitor and know they've got some pretty serious damage on board".

The Kiwi boat capsized in high winds at the start of their semi-final race against Britain's BAR.

Thursday's first race begins at 5:08am.

"We feel like we'll be able to fix it and get back into action". New Zealand's Peter Burling, at 26 the youngest helmsman in the competition, said they had chosen Land Rover BAR because they thought the conditions would be in their favor. In their first race of the day, Burling had reported being “out of control” and, while they settled later in the race, three times the boat reared violently and looked in danger of taking off.

In their second race of the day, Land Rover BAR won the pre-start duel over Emirates Team New Zealand and the Brits were away and heading for the first mark. "We felt we were in for a real battle today and obviously it was a bit of a shame there wasn't much of a battle".

"It's a fantastic effort from the guys on the boat and when you get a course like we had today it's very taxing on the crew, they all did an unbelievable job today". Skipper Dean Barker took a tumble on the trampoline.

Once the damage is assessed the shore crew will work through the night to get the boat ready to race.
