About the Author:

Ben Ainslie, CBE, was born in 1977 in Macclesfield. He started sailing at age four and first competed at the age of ten. He has won three Olympic gold medals and was awarded Yachtsman of the Year in 1995, 1999, 2000 and 2002.

Review:

'Take it from a neutral observer: the most accomplished competitor at work in British sport today is Ben Ainslie. Chris Hoy, Lewis Hamilton and Rebecca Adlington deserve praise but the real fanfare should be reserved for Ainslie ... [He has] a combination of dedication, stamina, tactical nous and, the clincher here, a sustained level of ruthlessness rarely witnessed before in British sport.' Henry Winter, Daily Telegraph Sailing's superman The Times
