America's Cup World Series, Naples - Tough day 2 for Artemis Racing

The second day of the America’s Cup World Series in Naples was a tough day for Artemis Racing. Fleet race three and four took place after two match races; Emirates Team New Zealand defeated Francesco Bruni onboard Luna Rossa Swordfish and Oracle Team USA- Slingsby won over HS Racing.

Young Swedish helmsman, Charlie Ekberg, had a tough time getting to the starting line on time in race one and was one of four teams over early in the start of the second fleet race. After the starts it was all about making up lost ground. With a short sprint to the first leeward gates it’s not easy. The team managed to get sixth and seventh place in the two fleet races.

There is only experience to be gained with this new team and for Ekberg, every moment on the water is experience that can be transferred to his Swedish Youth Challenge team after this week as they prepare for the Red Bull Youth America’s Cup in September.

The Artemis Racing shore team will have a longer night than usual today with a near capsize in race two and an accidental collision with HS Racing during a mark rounding.

Sebastian Tenghage, Swedish shore team member and reserve sailor for Artemis Racing White, explains his long night ahead. ' Unfortunately we had to lift out the boat and start doing some repairs on the bow and other bits and pieces that have broken during racing. It shouldn’t be an all-nighter and we will be ready for racing tomorrow.'

Tomorrow’s match racing semi-finals will be Oracle Team USA- Slingsby vs. J.P. Morgan BAR and the Luna Rossa Teams going head to head against their Italian teammates.
