Sir Ben Ainslie, the most successful Olympic sailor in history, is setting his sights on the America’s Cup.

On Tuesday, he introduced his team during a ceremony at Queens House, in England, to launch his America’s Cup challenge.

“This is the last great historic sporting prize never won by Great Britain. It has always been my ambition to mount a home challenge,” he said. “The time is right and I am hugely encouraged by the support we are getting, not least from the Duchess of Cambridge. I learned a great deal aboard Oracle in San Francisco and I would not be challenging if I did not believe we have a real chance of winning this time.”
