Sir Ben Ainslie to marry Georgie Thompson this Christmas

Yachting Boating World: The Olympic sailor revealed his plans to wed his fiancé earlier this week.

 

Sir Ben Ainslie has  revealed he plans to marry his fiancée and TV presenter Georgie Thompson this Christmas. The couple, who got engaged in October, have been dating for almost two years

Writing in the Daily: Telegraph about his achievements this year, Ainslie said: “What a 12 months it has been. To top it all off I got engaged to Georgie a couple of months ago and
we will be getting married over the festive period. 

“Truly, this has been  a remarkable year.”
The sailor, who recently suffered from man flu during the Extreme Sailing Series in Sydney, hopes he won’t be “sneezing and sniffing” his way down the aisle.

Speaking about his
professional achievements, Ainslie added: “I was not sure that much could top
the experience of the Americas Cup last autumn but the thrill of setting up a
new team
, virtually from scratch, working with such a talented group of people
to reach the position we find ourselves in now, has been incredible. 

“I could not be more excited about the future of Ben Ainslie Racing heading into 2015.

“We will return with renewed vigour in the New Year. I’ve just got a small date to keep first. And yes, there may be a boat involved on the honeymoon!”
