Sail-World.com : RC44 Sweden Cup - Volatile day for Artemis Racing

RC44 Sweden Cup - Volatile day for Artemis Racing

RC44 Sweden Cup’s fleet racing portion is now in full swing and for Artemis Racing, the day was filled with ups and downs. Paul Cayard of Artemis Racing reports:

It was a wet and dreary day weather wise but there was a bit of wind and the Petter Reggio and his race committee managed to get in three good races.


Katusha and Artemis both had two scores in the first two races. Katusha with a 3, 2 and Artemis with a 4, 5. The wind was six to nine knots most of the day but very volatile as the easterly wind was coming off the land. Both teams sailed well to post those scores. Aleph also sailed well in those two races scoring one point more than Katusha.

Just prior to the start of the third race, Artemis was involved in a serious collision which took Artemis out for the day. They are assessing the damage and will make a plan tonight for the rest of the series.

Onboard Katusha, we had a poor third race. We just seemed to be on the wrong side of the shifts and ultimately finished 12th.

Katusha is in fourth place over all, just six points out of first place, which is just fine with two more days of racing to go. There will be more heartache and frustration out on that race track before it is all said and done. So plenty of points to be gained and lost. The top nine boats are all within eight points!

No Way back leads with 21 points, followed by Aleph on 22, and Aqua on 26.
