Traders count the cost of low attendance at America's Cup

After months of planning and anticipation, yesterday's dreadful weather may have scuppered the sailing - but the America's Cup World Series was far from a washout - according to organisers.

Plans are already underway to bring the sailing spectacular back to Portsmouth next year - with Ben Ainslie saying that Saturday's racing in front of the home crowd was the most amazing day of his sailing career.
