Light and tricky airs tripped up Britain’s Ben Ainslie in the final of the opening grand prix of the world match racing tour in Marseille.

The triple gold and silver Olympic medallist went down 0-2 to France’s Mathieu Richard with his Team Origin crew of Iain Percy, Matt Cornwell and Christian Kamp.

Origin, Britain’s America’s Cup team, next takes to the water in Cascais, Portugal for the opening regatta of the Audi MedCup series in its brand new, Juan Kouyoumdjian-designed TP52 and then moves on to La Maddalena, Sardinia, for the Louis Vuitton Trophy.
