Bangin' The Corners - Fan submitted video

by Randy Cunningham on 10 Apr 2013
Sir Ben Ainslie Ben Ainslie Racing www.benainslieracing.com
You often hear us say that 'Here at Bangin' The Corners we research, none of this copy and paste journalism'. But this time that is exactly what we have in store...

A video submitted to us from a fan in the United States! 10 year old Claire from California created this video and sent it to us. We loved it! It is a 'reenactment' of Sir Ben Ainslie's knighting ceremony.. with an interesting twist. It's great to see that our work is inspiring people to poke fun at these hot shot sailors.

Maybe this Summer (northern hemisphere) we'll have ourselves a young apprentice at Bangin' The Corners!
