4th January 2010

Britain’s most successful Olympic Sailor Ben Ainslie will be present on Saturday 9th January at the Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show located at Excel to sign copies his Autobiography "Close to the Wind".

And now you can experience the exhilarating whirlwind of Ben's life first hand in his autobiography Close to the Wind. From his proudest moment representing Team GB to one tough decision that almost risked destroying his career - this is a unique insight into the man who cannot let himself be second best

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
