Sir Ben Ainslie, himself a four-time Olympic champion, is attempting to become the first Briton to win the world’s oldest sporting trophy with his Land Rover BAR team.
The 35th instalment of the event has already been hit by an unexpected twist as the first day of qualifiers – Friday, May 26th – was postponed amid strong winds in Bermuda.
However, the BT Sport team will still be broadcasting free-to-air from 9pm to bring you the latest news, views and schedule amendments, with the live action now set to commence on Saturday, May 26th.
