Ainslie Looks to Bow Out at the Top

London – 24 November 2010

Triple Olympic gold medallist, Ben Ainslie believes victory in the ISAF Match Racing World Championship at the Monsoon Cup next week would be the perfect swansong for TEAMORIGIN and the ideal retort to Mathieu Richard’s taunts of inconsistency.

Speaking ahead of what will be, for the foreseeable future at least, the last time Ainslie competes in a match race for TEAMORIGIN alongside one of the most decorated crews in sailing, he said:

“It would be fantastic for us as a team to bow out at the top of the World Championship and to win the Monsoon Cup next week. The Monsoon Cup is unique – I’ve never sailed in an event quite like it because I don’t think there is an event like it in the world.”

Meanwhile, commenting on Mathieu Richard (FRA) French Match Racing Team’s belief that Ainslie’s biggest weakness is his ‘inconsistency’, the Brit replied: “I was quite amused to read Mathieu Richard’s comment - My team has competed in five events on this year’s Tour and we’re in with a chance of winning the title so I don’t agree with him on that.”
