America's Cup 2013: Sir Ben Ainslie, the new Nelson, is the modern sea dog of war - Telegraph: "Should we slosh our mugs and sing a shanty of how Ainslie rescued America from ignominy in the glistening waters off San Francisco? Shall we go on repeating that the Oracle catamaran of Larry Ellison, the world’s fifth-richest man, was flotsam on the waves to the New Zealand challenge before Ainslie brought his tactical skill and admiral’s authority to America’s quest to retain the Auld Mug, which has never been won by a British team in 162 years? . . ."

Sir Ben Ainslie: 'I’m not so stupid as to think I did it alone’ - Telegraph: "Sir Ben is the undisputed king of British yacht racing, his status as a team leader confirmed emphatically following a solo career that saw him capture four Olympic gold medals. Unforgiving on the water – he was briefly a hate figure in Brazil for the aggressive blocking tactics he used to take gold in the Laser class from that country’s sailing hero during the Sydney Olympics – he is a model of modesty on dry land."

Definitely Not Leisure Sailing | BU Today | Boston University: "Contrary to remarks by some cynical and/or envious observers, members of the BU sailing team are not out in the middle of the Charles River to work on their tans. And while coming about on calm waters under sunny fall skies is undoubtedly delightful, the team also practices on frozen March days when there is still ice on the river. It’s a 60-hour-a-week commitment, and strength and endurance play more than a small part."
