    Team Ineos's America's Cup campaign is on hold as it hunkers down during the coronavirus pandemic in the UK

    Team Ineos's America's Cup campaign is on hold as it hunkers down during the coronavirus pandemic in the UK


    The Portsmouth based syndicate are in the midst of building their second Cup boat but their focus has switched to building masks and hand sanitisers.

    Skipper Sir Ben Ainslie says it was a difficult decision abandoning their sailing programme in Sardinia last month.



    Sir Ben Ainslie still expects the America's Cup to take place in Auckland in February and March next year.
