GLIDING through the water, this stunning boat crafted by Ben Ainslie Racing is being tested out in the Solent ahead of the next America’s Cup.
The AC45 class yacht was captured in the sea by independent photographer Shaun Roster. It is one of the vessels the British sailing team will be racing at the next America’s Cup, taking place in America in 2017. The yacht is being kept in storage at a temporary base in Southampton until Ben Ainslie Racing’s new race base headquarters is created at the Camber in Old Portsmouth.
They’ve been taken out to see how they’re doing and if changes in their design need to be made. Mr Roster said: ‘The boat is the Formula 1 of sailing.’
