Sir Ben all at sea for once
7:00am Tuesday 29th October 2013 in Sport
FOR ONCE SIR Ben Ainslie did not head the leaderboard in the race for a championship.
In fact, he wasn’t even on it. But what he lacked in style, the four times Olympic sailing gold medallist and recent Americas Cup winner made up for by his presence as 76 golfers turned out at Cams Hall, Fareham yesterday for the 17th North Sails Golf Day.
They raised £5,500 for the John Merricks Sailing Trust, of which Sir Ben is a patron, taking their 16-year total to over £163,000 to support young sailors and junior sailing projects. At least two of the golfers showed a bit of style. Mark Lee from Craftinsure won with a score of 43, earning the famous Bandit trophy. And Nick Baggot achieved the first hole in one in the history of the Golf Day.
