America's Cup: Törnqvist takes the helm of Artemis AC45
Fri, 21 Jun 2013
Artemis Racing’s owner, Torbjörn Törnqvist, touched down in San Francisco this week, where he spent time with the team—working out, taking part in dive training, and sailing on the AC45 (even notching a new speed record). It was Torbjörn’s second visit in the last month.
'It has been great to be together with the team, and I am impressed with what they’ve been able to accomplish under such difficult circumstances,' Torbjörn said. 'There is clearly still a lot of work to do, but safety remains the central consideration.'
