Slingsby shoots for green and golden era with SailGP


LONDON (Reuters) - Screaming across Sydney Harbour at the helm of a 50-foot foiling catamaran with Australia's green and gold emblazoned on its sail and its flag flying is a dream come true for Tom Slingsby.

The 34-year-old is not only getting to lead his own team as skipper of the Australian SailGP team this week, he also sees the chance to showcase the country's sailing prowess and potentially kick-start a tilt at the America's Cup.
