Sir Ben Ainslie has work to do on the Land Rover BAR boat after a shocking second day
Great Britain's boat suffered severe damage from yesterday's race against Japan which left them with little time to mend the hull in time for today.
Sir Ben Ainslie's shore team worked tirelessly overnight to repair the damage though and they were able to be ready for the second day of racing.
But their first test of the afternoon came up against the formidable Oracle Team USA boat.
Great Britain got off to a flying start from the line but were playing catch up after USA took the lead after Mark 1.
Land Rover BAR were well beaten by both USA and New Zealand
And Oracle went in to cruise control after Gate 5 with BAR clearly showing signs of wear and tear from yesterday's damage despite the work overnight.
USA went on to record a comprehensive 39 second win over Ainslie's team with more patch-up work needed on the hull.
BAR had little over an hour to repair the damage before their second race of the day against New Zealand.

The Kiwis gave Great Britain hope after entering the pre-start area too early, meaning they would concede a two boat length advantage to Ainslie's team.
But New Zealand completely outstripped the British boat with their straight-line speed and took the lead from the second mark.

From there BAR had no hope and were well beaten with a huge 1 minute 28 seconds separating the two boats.
