After a year on the America's Cup scene, Ben Ainlsie is going back to Olympic sailing
Ben Ainslie who joined the OneWorld Challenge for the 31st America’s Cup after his gold medal-winning success at the Sydney Olympic Games has decided to quit and return to Olympic sailing.
In a report written by Bob Ratliffe published on Scuttlebutt, Ainslie is quoted: “The last year and a half being a part of OneWorld has been an amazing learning experience for me. I have made friendships that will last a lifetime and wish the team the greatest success. I have also learned a great deal about myself and what motivates me. I realise that the world of small boat sailing, where I have spent my sailing career is where I want to put my efforts at this point in my life.”
