Ben Ainslie inspires next generation in memory of Simpson

Four-time Olympic gold medallist Sir Ben Ainslie wants to inspire the next generation of sailors in memory of his close friend and fellow Olympic gold medallist, Andrew Simpson, who died whilst training for the Americas Cup in 2013.

Ainslie, Britain's greatest sailor, has admitted that his Olympic days are over but he is very keen on helping develop the sport he has dedicated most of his life to.
