18 May 2012, 17:20 Ben Ainslie secures sixth Finn Gold Cup as Falmouth Finn Festival closes

It has been a week of extremes at the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Finn Gold Cup in Falmouth, UK and the final day was no different. Though a medal race was attempted, it was soon abandoned and an hour later racing was completely abandoned for the day as the wind disappeared. This left Ben Ainslie (GBR) as Finn World Champion for the sixth time. Ed Wright (GBR) took the silver while Jonas Hogh-Christesen (DEN) took the bronze.

Ainslie scores hat-trick in mammoth conditions on day five at J.P. Morgan Asset Management Finn Gold
18 May 2012 Ainslie scores hat-trick in mammoth conditions on day five at J.P. Morgan Asset Management Finn Gold Awesome is an overused word, but today it doesn't really come close to adequately describe the performance of Ben Ainslie (GBR) on day five of the J.P. Morgan Asset Management Finn Gold Cup in Falmouth. In the toughest, roughest conditions that much of the fleet have sailed in for many years he took three race wins and is now within a whisker of his sixth Finn World title. Ed Wright (GBR) remains in second while Jonas H√łgh-Christensen (DEN) moves up to third
No racing on Day Four in Falmouth
16 May 2012 No racing on Day Four in Falmouth There was no racing on day four of the J.P. Asset Management Finn Gold Cup in Falmouth, UK, after the wind spent most of the day spinning circles around the race committee. Three races will now be sailed on Thursday, to conclude the opening series, before Friday's medal race and final race.
