Britain aim to regain America's Cup pride

Teams from Britain and America are recreating a race which began 159 years ago, which saw teams from both countries race around the Isle of Wight.

The Americans won, and took home the America's Cup. Ever since, the British have failed to win it back.

Today Britain, racing as 'Team Origin' with champion yachtsman Ben Ainslie, will attempt to restore British pride during a friendly race against the Americans.

Brian Milligan reports from Cowes.
