Wales' two training bases for next year's Rugby World Cup have been announced.

The Vale Resort on the outskirts of Cardiff and London Irish RFC will be home to Warren Gatland's side during the competition.

Tournament organisers England 2015 have announced the 41 team bases across England and Wales that will host the 20 competing teams.

Gatland's squad, which reached the semi-finals of the competition in New Zealand three years ago, will spend their time between the two venues for the duration of their four pool encounters.

We are delighted to confirm that Wales will be based at the The Vale Resort and at London Irish during next year's tournament.

A great deal of effort has been put in to select the approved bases and we are very pleased to be based at two excellence sporting venues.

– Warren Gatland

Wales will share the facilities with France.

Other training venues in Wales are the Celtic Manor Resort, near Newport, Cardiff Metropolitan University, Sports Wales National Centre, also in Cardiff, and Swansea University.

Some of the world's best sailors will hit the waters of Cardiff Bay this weekend for the fifth stage of the Extreme Sailing Series.

The event is returning to the capital for the third year for its UK leg which will feature 40 catamarans. The race travels to some of the world's most iconic places including St Petersburg, Singapore and Sydney.

Olympic and America's Cup sailing star Sir Ben Ainslie is among competitors taking part in the event which runs until Monday. He skippers the British entry JP Morgan BAR.

It is crazy racing. Anyone who has seen the series, or taken part in it, will tell you that the style of the courses, the speed of the boats and the number of boats on any side of the course at one time means there is a lot of action and a lot of potential for crashes and incidents.

So it makes for exciting racing and you really have to be on your toes.

Watch: Malky insists he's 'no racist' and 'no homophobe'

Former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay has said he's 'no racist, no sexist and no homophobe', as he apologised for sending text messages he's called 'unacceptable.'

It's been alleged that he exchanged controversial text messages with his former recruitment chief Iain Moody, while they were both at the Bluebirds.

In a television interview, Mackay has now admitted sending three 'inappropriate' messages and says he did make a mistake.

Nick Hartley has the story.
