What a privilege to be invited to provide flowers for the launch on 10th June of Ben Ainslie and Yacht Squadron Racing’s bid to win the Americas Cup in 2017. The brief for the floral arrangements was to be ‘all English’, which we met with a mixture of sweet peas, cornflowers and roses with herbs in white and blue.
The event was held at the Royal Museums Greenwich and was attended by the Duchess of Cambridge.
I learned that Britain has never won this trophy despite having invented the race back in 1851. Given Sir Ben’s success in the winning team, ORACLETEAM USA, last year, hopes are high that he can do it for GB this time.
We’ll be cheering him on!
