Having quit the Seattle-based OneWorld America's Cup syndicate, Ben Ainslie has chosen the Finn dinghy for his 2004 Olympic campaign in Athens

Ben Ainslie, British Olympic Gold medallist, who announced his resignation from the One World Challenge America’s Cup syndicate yesterday, will be campaigning a Finn in his bid to win a second gold medal at the next Olympic Games.

Although there has been speculation about Ben opting for the Star class, the Finn is the natural progression for someone who has so much talent in singlehanders.
