Ben Ainslie claims gold at the Beijing 2008 Olympics

The sailing instalment of the London 2012-inspired, UK-wide series of exhibitions Our Sporting Life trumpets Great Britain's unrivalled success in this Olympic and Paralympic event. From Olympic sailing's beginnings at the Paris Olympics in 1990 to Team GB's remarkable haul of gold medals in Beijing four years ago, this show draws on anecdotes, photographs and keepsakes to look behind the scenes at how the boats and sailors have changed through time.
