Cornwall's Ben Ainslie Launches America's Cup Bid
3:45pm 10th June 2014
Cornwall's most famous sailor says he will mastermind Britain's bid to win the America's Cup.
Sir Ben Ainslie has launched our sixty million pound challenge to take the oldest trophy in sport, alongside Kate.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore a nautical-inspired cream and navy Jaeger shift dress.
The Olympic gold medallist said it was an honour to have her there: "We're very grateful for her support. She's very knowledgeable about the design side of the boat which was pretty impressive and hopefully we can get her out sailing.
Ben learnt to sail in the creeks around Restronguet. He says it is now time to settle a score: "The Americas Cup started in British waters in 1851 and the American team took it off and we haven't seen it since so it's the last great sporting challenge we have in this country so we're keen to put that straight."
