Sir Ben Ainslie back on the water in Bermuda
10:40am Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Sport
SIR Ben Ainslie was back on the water today - just weeks after playing a major role in Team Oracle’s sensational America’s Cup win.
Among Ainslie’s crew in his team is another Hampshire-based Olympic gold medallist, Southampton-born Iain Percy.
Other luminaries from the 34th America’s Cup will also be racing in Bermuda including Italians Francesco Bruni and Luna Rossa.
Luna Rossa Team Principal Patrizio Bertelli has already announced his intention to challenge for the 35th America’s Cup.
Bruni last competed on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour over 2010-11, finishing second to Southampton’s Ian Williams in 2011.
Williams is currently leading the tour overall, and is in the same Group 2 qualifying section in Bermuda as Ainslie.
The Argo Group Gold Cup is the highlight of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club’s annual regatta calendar.
