America's Cup: Artemis Racing sailing on Day 8    
Thu, 13 Dec 2012


The Challenger of Record for the 34th America's Cup, Artemis Racing (SWE), returned to training again on San Francisco Bay after nearly another week between sessions.

They theoretically have 22 days remaining, but with weather and holidays in the mix it is mathematically difficult to get their full 30 days in before January 31, 2013.

Today's conditions were spectacular visually, but cool and crisp, winds 8-12 and gusting into the 20's. There are no images of the AC72 foiling in this sequence, in contrast to the other three teams, all of which were foiling by Day 4 of their programs

The biggest tidal change of the year, the King Tide made the afternoon ebb quite pronounced on the South Bay!
