From 23 June
A new exhibition opening at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall on July 4 will celebrate British success in water sports at the Olympic and Paralympic games.
In recent years Britain has earned an enviable record in both sailing and rowing at the Olympic Games, with gold medal winners such as Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Matthew Pinsent and Sir Ben Ainslie now household names, but these are by no means the only medal winners.
The exhibition will also feature a canoe used by gold medal winners Tim Baillie and Etienne Stott.
At London 2012 Baillie and Stott paddled to victory in the Men's C2 Canoe Slalom. In fact Team GB won gold and silver in this event with Baillie and Stott beating fellow Brits David Florence and Richard Hounslow by just one third of a second.
The exhibition will also feature three dinghies raced to gold medal success by their respective helmsmen: Rodney Pattisson's Superdocious, which he sailed to victory in the two-man Flying Dutchman class in 1968 and two dinghies, a Laser and a Finn both called Rita, in which Sir Ben Ainslie achieved his unprecedented four gold medals, making him the most successful Olympic sailor of all time.
Exhibition Design Officer, Ian Guyver says: "This is a wonderful opportunity for visitors to get up close to Olympic gold winning boats and celebrate the games without flying thousands of miles to Rio!"
The Medal Winners' Hall Of Fame is open from July 4 until April 30 at the National Maritime Museum Cornwall in Falmouth.
