At the America’s Cup World Series in Naples, it was a full team effort to repair and replace the severely damaged wing to get Artemis Racing back out on the water today following on from yesterday’s capsize.

Leaving the dock this morning Skipper Terry Hutchinson said: 'We're a little bit tired. But happy we have a wing back in the boat. Hats off to the guys for the effort that they put in last night. The shore crew worked from about 1800 onwards for the whole night.'

In the first match race of the event, Hutchinson led the team to a clear victory over the Chinese. Artemis Racing will now line up against number one ranked Emirates Team New Zealand tomorrow morning for a slot in Saturday’s semi-finals.


In the fleet racing, the team took a third place, followed by seventh having incurred a penalty in a tussle with Team Korea.

'We were going well today, but in the second race we copped a penalty, although we were quite a distance from them. Looking forward to racing again tomorrow,' said Hutchinson.

Racing continues tomorrow through Sunday at the America’s Cup World Series in Naples.

Bob Fisher writes from Naples, Italy on the Day 6 of the America's Cup World Series, Naples Race Day 4 America's Cup World Series, Naples: 'Super Sunday' – the very term is destined to be inspirational, but it can also induce fear to a team that has dutifully logged a series of good results to appear at or near the top of the scoreboard. The reason is the heavily skewed points available for the one race on the final day.

And it did, during the races with patches of no more than four knots and huge shifts of up to 40 degrees.

It was held in a building with bare walls and more echoes than enough – and the behavior of the 'media' not actually involved was appalling – they talked loudly and the photographers were among the worst. Interviewing a skipper was a painful operation.
