Sir Ben Ainslie and INEOS Team UK at 40 knots plus

Congratulations to all 120 members of INEOS Team UK for their hard work and contribution to the amazing turnaround  in boatspeed of their AC75 in the Prada Cup. Day 3 ended in a most dramatic fashion with American Magic (USA) leaping out of the water while bearing away in a rain squall at the last mark in the last race in which they had a good lead over Luna Rossa.
