America’s Cup Action in Haslar
Haslar was again in the thick of it at this year's ACWS
For the second year, Haslar Marina was delighted to be the home for the America's Cup World Series race marks and support boats. The strange floating structures looked most odd in the visitors' area, but it was lovely to see the America's Cup logo in the marina.
The marina was ram-packed with berth holders and visitors watching the action off Southsea, and the wonderful weather was a great improvement on last year's unseasonable gales. To top off an amazing weekend, Ben Ainslie's team Land Rover BAR won the Portsmouth regatta by a single point from Oracle Team USA, putting them into overall lead in the challenger series so far.
Having such a prestigious international event right on our doorstep has been the most fantastic fun, and a wonderful way to showcase Portsmouth Harbour and the local area.
