INEOS TEAM UK FACE LUNA ROSSA IN PRADA CUP FINAL

INEOS team UK's race boat, Britannia out at sail

It’s a great moment for the team because we’ve obviously had a tough start and a tough build-up to this competition, so I’m incredibly proud of everyone. That said we know we’ve still got a long way to go, so while we’ve got ourselves into the Prada Cup final, it’s just one step on the road and now we’ve got to focus on trying to win that and, after that, the Cup.

Ben Ainslie and his team will be working to constantly improve and push the limits to stay ahead of the competition in their efforts to win the America’s Cup.

What’s next for INEOS Team UK?

The Prada Challenger’s Trophy is a stepping-stone to the America’s Cup – the world’s most prestigious sailing competition. If INEOS Team UK are to compete for the Cup, they must first win this trophy, which means beating the in-form Italians manning Luna Rossa. That will be no easy task.
