Matthew Sheahan talks to Ben Ainslie, Ellen MacArthur and Iain Percy in this two-part report
A Yachting World special podcast from the London Boat Show at Excel. Part 1 kicks off with Matthew Sheahan’s whistle-stop tour of the sailing hall at Excel before he interviews British America’s Cup backer Sir Keith Mills, Alex Thompson, Ellen MacArthur and Iain Percy.
In Part 2 Ben Ainslie talks about the pressures of balancing an America’s Cup role against his Olympic campaign in the Finn, while Shirley Robertson discusses how she combines being a mother of twins and Olympic training.
In addition, Matt visits the all action stand at the heart of the show, that of the UKSA, before talking to Oyster’s Richard Matthews and Laser designer Jo Richards about two brand new designs at opposite ends of the sailing spectrum.
