Friday Bench: Spotting Where Ben’s Been

Friday Bench Spotting Where Bens Been

Behind the 2012 Finn class dinghy is Sydney 2000’s Laser 🙂

Having spent the summer of 2012 on a complete high or on the verge of tears over the Olympics/Paralympics, I admit I had the same mixture of emotions when I spotted Sir Ben Ainslie’s Finn and Laser dinghies last December. Having sailed a Laser dinghy a few times, I know how feisty they can be! I have complete admiration for Falmouth’s favourite son, quadruple gold medal winner (not forgetting 1 silver) and the first official torch bearer of the 2012 Olympic torch relay 🙂
