Monday brought the biggest setback yet, when the wing sail on the British boat was seriously damaged in the opening race of the challenger semifinals, forcing him back to shore with two quick losses to Emirates Team New Zealand.
Sir Ben Ainslie and his Land Rover BAR team were looking to take advantage of Emirates Team New Zealand's dramatic capsizing on Tuesday but wind speeds of more than 24 knots put paid to their hopes.
Some of the crew were thrown overboard while others, including Burling, remained trapped in the vessel as it teetered upright while they waited for the safety boat to arrive.
Burling said the most important thing was that his crew were safe and sustained no major injuries.
The [shore crew] are already working on the repairs. "We'll be back out tomorrow pushing hard". "But I've got a lot of belief in the team that this is something we can come back from". The boat almost sank as it returned to the dock after the race.
The Kiwi boat capsized in high winds at the start of their semi-final race against Britain's BAR. As this was not a scheduled lay day, and as it is the last day of the Semi-Finals, the number of races will depend on how long it takes for the victor of each Semi-Final match to win five races in the best of nine series. That definitely was a full team effort..
"It's pretty serious", Ainslie said.
This was the most serious of Ainslie's troubles this spring.
"These boats are incredibly high-performance, technical racing machines and we're pushing them to the limits", Ainslie said.
Burling was afterwards cautiously optimistic the Kiwis, who lead the best-of-nine semi-final 3-1, would be able to continue racing.
We are obviously thrilled with the day; that was pretty full-on by anyones standards, Barker, the Team Japan skipper, said.
"The guys have taken the boat out and assessed the damage, of which we have quite a bit", he told media. They all did an awesome job today..
The semi-final winners will go head-to-head to decide who gets to challenge holders Team USA for the America's Cup itself, starting on June 17.
