Ben Ainslie leads the way at the J.P Morgan Asset Management Finn Gold Cup in Falmouth after winning the opening race on day two.

The British Olympic gold medal hopeful assumed the overall lead from compatriot Ed Wright who is second, while another Brit Andrew Mills is third.

Canada's Chris Cook won the second race of the day and is sixth.

"It was really tough out there today," Ainslie said afterwards.

"It was quite windy, a lot of rain and low visibility so it was a difficult day for everyone and a real challenge."
