Ainslie and Williams aim high, crashes, videos, images and more
Welcome to our latest edition of Sail-World.com's UK newsletter.
The Weymouth and Portland International Regatta is in full swing. Being held at the London Olympics sailing venue, this regatta has attracted the world's top sailors and the competition is tough.
In the Finns, Ben Ainslie showed his class, fighting back after taking an unplanned swim to hold a three point lead going into the lay day. Cold, strong winds and physically testing conditions in Weymouth Bay have been pushing the GBR sailors.
And we cannot forget Cowes Week and the Extreme 40 crashes. While the majority of the fleets enjoyed sunshine and breeze, Aberdeen Asset Management managed to entertain the crowds with a spectacular cart wheel, the boat flipping almost vertical, before capsizing. See Sail-World.com's exclusive images from Ben Gladwell, and if that's not enough checkout the video.
