Backing Sir Ben’s America’s Cup plan must be no-brainer

ZELLA COMPTON: Think hard: is it really worth going to uni?

Have your say

I strongly believe that the people of Portsmouth should be behind Sir Ben Ainslie’s plan to base a British America’s Cup team in the Camber docks.

For years, this area has been under-utilised and a modern yachting facility would perfectly complement the traditional nature of the docks.

As for history meeting innovation, Spice Island overlooking the futuristic Spinnaker Tower shows how far the city as come.

With the jobs it would create and how it would turn Portsmouth into a major player in the world of yachting, to me this is a no- brainer. How awe-inspiring would it be to see these beautiful yachts sailing in and out of the harbour?
