RC44 Sweden Cup wrap up report from Paul Cayard of Artemis Racing:
RC44 Sweden Cup 2011
Good sailing conditions were served up today in Marstrand. With 10-15 knots of wind from the South, Peter Reggio was able to get three races in for the RC44 fleet.
Neither Artemis Racing nor Katusha had a very good day which capped off not a very good regatta for us. Artemis finished eighth for the series and Katusha 10th.
Team Aqua rose to the occasion with a strong challenge from a much improved Ceeref. Puerto Calero sailed well in the last two days to move up to third.
Marstrand was a great host to the fleet and I would not be surprised if we're back here next year.
Next stop for the fleet is Roving, Croatia at the end of September. I last raced in Roving in 1990 when we used to have a match race event there called the ACY Cup. Roving is a very nice little fishing village on Croatia's West coast about three hours south of Trieste, Italy. I am looking forward to going back.
Artemis Racing will be competing the D35 event in Beaulieu, France from 1-4 September and then in the AC45 World Series event in Plymouth from 8-18 September.
