Ben Ainslie's winning boat is back on display at the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth.

The Finn class dinghy, named Rita, helped Ben to win a gold medal at Weymouth.

She became a museum piece after Ainslie won gold at Athens and Beijing, but he decided to take her out of retirement for his London 2012 effort.
