Rumours circulating tonight say that Ben Ainslie will make an announcement on Tuesday 10th January.
The big question is will this just be for the ACWS or the 34th AC as well? or maybe ACWS and the 35th AC.

I am watching it now via the Y+Y site (replay)

Best of luck to him, its all about sailing, so lets see how he is as a team member onboard an AC boat.

Great news for Ben, just have to hope, that he does not get distracted during the Olympics, by his AC aspirations.

Good luck in the Olympics, and good luck in the AC World Series.....

Do we know yet whether he's going to be eligible to sail anything anywhere?

Fair comment Jim, but, do you really think, that the RYA or ISAF, would have the balls to ban Ben from racing?? And I'm not convinced that it would be deserved anyway....
