America's Cup 2015: Behind the scenes with BBC South Today / by Harriet Dedman

This week, the America's Cup challenge kicked off in Portsmouth, as Ben Ainslie and Team Landrover BAR fight for their place in the 2017 final. 

I joined the BBC South Today team on Thursday as the action unfurled on the waterways. Working behind the scenes with the production team, my images from the day can be viewed on social media here, and the features tab above.

Landrover BAR team member, Matthew Cornwell, talks to the BBC's Tony Husband.
