SOUNDBITE (English) TEAM GB SKIPPER BEN AINSLIE SAYING: "It was an amazing day of racing the wind was quite strong from the south so it was shifty and puffy which you can probably see made it quite a challenge for all of the sailors, all of the teams, but our guys did a fantastic sailing the boat getting the manoeuvres right.

We generally went the right way and just had a fantastic day.

A great opening for us and now time to refocus for tomorrow, probably slightly lighter conditions and just try to keep the ball rolling." 6.

The hosts enter Saturday tied with Japan in second-place in the overall point standings, while Spain team are back in fifth after inflicting serious damage to the French boat resulting in subsequent point deductions.
