    Sir Ben Ainslie knows chances of staging a comeback could depend on wind

    Sir Ben Ainslie knows his side's chances of staging a Prada Cup challenger series comeback could depend on whether it gets windier on the Hauraki Gulf


    Time is running out for the British Challenger who will start packing their bags if they lose both races against Luna Rossa this afternoon.

    The Italians who lead the best of 13 series 5-1 have an edge when the wind dips below 11 or 12 knots and Ainslie's hoping the sea breeze forecast kicks in earlier this afternoon.



    Racing will take place on course A.
