A new era of challengers

America's Cup Challengers

INEOS TEAM UK has been formed to challenge for the 36th America's Cup, to be held in New Zealand in 2021. INEOS has partnered with Sir Ben Ainslie, the most successful Olympic sailor in history, to skipper INEOS TEAM UK.

With this significant commitment from INEOS to fully fund a two boat challenge, Britain now has its best opportunity to bring the America's Cup back home to Britain.

#NoHumanIsLimited

Ben Ainslie is a household name, not only in the sailing community but to Olympic enthusiasts worldwide. Ben’s infamous assertiveness on the water has, over the years, left competitors in his wake, no match for his admirable determination and ruthless tactics. However, growing up, Ben was quiet, diligent, unassuming, even shy and it was only sailing that allowed Ben to fully express, push and eventually excel himself.
