FOUR-TIME Olympic gold medallist Sir Ben Ainslie has today (Tuesday) launched his bid to win the America’s Cup and bring the 163-year-old trophy back to Cowes.
Sir Ben, who last year became the first Briton to be part of a winning America’s Cup team in 110 years with Oracle Team USA, announced his challenge with Yacht Squadron Racing, which is affiliated to the historic Royal Yacht Squadron at Cowes.
It means should his team be successful and win the cup for Britain, it will bring it back to Cowes and the place where it all began 163 years ago.
