Sir Ben Ainslie says he is preparing for key meetings to discuss setting up a British team for the next America's Cup.
 
 
"Now it is time to look ahead to my next challenge – the ultimate challenge – to bring the cup back to British waters for the first time in something like 165 years"
 
"I’ve got some key meetings with some of these people and we’ll talk pretty honestly about whether we think it’s realistic to get a campaign together."
 
"I cannot say yet where the base would be if we could get a British team together, everyone would expect Weymouth and Portland to be up there"
 
The America's Cup is the oldest international sporting trophy and with the Americans defending, the next race in 2016 or 2017 will stay in the U.S., but we're sure with Sir Ben at the helm of a British team, there's a good chance we could see the cup back in British waters in the next few years.
