NEW TERRITORY, NEW WINNER IN OMAN

British team Land Rover BAR claimed the first Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series event of 2016.

Ben Ainslie, the most decorated Olympic sailor in history, led his team to victory at the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in Oman this weekend after a tight and spectacular race. Sir Ben Ainslie is now getting closer to his long-term aim of challenging for Britain and bringing the America’s Cup back home to where it all began in 1851.

As the emblematic Trophy of the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup continues to explore new territories, the Sultanate of Oman became the first country in the Middle East to host America’s Cup racing by staging the prestigious Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series event this weekend.
