There are high hopes that Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy could host the Americas Cup.

Olympic Sailor Sir Ben Ainslie helped guide Team USA to victory and with his close ties to the venue it looks more likely the competition could be brought here.

Tim Hancock is Chairman of the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy - he also has 3 world titles to his name.

He's told Wessex FM that as Ben Ainslie is a Director at WPNSA he hopes they stand a real chance of hosting the event if it comes to the UK.
