Ainslie eyes next America’s Cup tilt
Ben Ainslie is not about to give up steering the boat in his quest to bring the America’s Cup back to Britain and is set to plan his next campain after he returns home next week.
Ainslie would prefer the next America’s Cup to be sailed in the high-speed 50-foot catamarans, but he said he would be open to other types of boat. “I still see myself as steering the boat ... This isn’t all about Ben Ainslie having to steer the boat to win the America’s Cup, it’s about Britain winning the America’s Cup,” he said.
