Falmouth Olympic sailor Ben Ainslie says his team have got a huge mountain to climb to win the America's Cup.

He has been speaking at the Round the Island Race, after Pirate FM told you about calls to bring it to Cornwall.

Hopes are high for a British victory in 2017.

It is after Ben revealed a £60m challenge for the trophy.

Here is what he said at the Round the Island Race: "We still have a huge mountain to climb to go and take the America's Cup off Larry Ellison, it's going to be a massive challenge but I'm very happy with the team we've assembled, we've continued with our focus and determination.

"We absolutely need everyone to be behind the team, the whole nation to be behind the team, and certainly look at funding, with a project like this crowd sourcing is obviously a great way to do that, we will absolutely be trying to get people behind us, to get sailors and non-sailors behind the team."
