Ben Ainslie believes this year's 34th edition of the America's Cup will be the most exciting event in the competition's 162-year history.

The Great Britain gold medallist, who is part of the Team Oracle USA team, is in awe of the stunning AC72s that are being used in San Francisco.

Emirates Team New Zealand made an impressive start to the series on Saturday by winning the opening two races of this year's event.


"I think this America's Cup will be the most exciting that we've ever seen," Ainslie told Sky Sports.

"These boats, the AC72s, they are extremely fast and physical which makes for really exciting racing.

"For the fans to switch on at home you're going to see some amazing racing between two very close teams."
