America's Cup: Artemis Racing announce team for Cascais

'Artemis racing training off Valencia'    Andrew Palfrey

With ten days until the start of the inaugural America’s Cup World Series (ACWS) regatta in Cascais (Portugal), Artemis Racing has announced their crew for the event.

Following on from winning the Extreme Sailing Series in Istanbul and a close second place finish in Boston a few short weeks ago, Skipper Terry Hutchinson (USA) will have trimmers Sean Clarkson (NZL) and Morgan Trubovich (NZL) on board, as well as Julien Cressant (FRA) on bow, plus experienced Navigator Kevin Hall (USA) on camber, while Stu Bettany (NZL) will be on stand by as the team's reserve sailor.

The Artemis Racing shore team has arrived in Cascais to begin building the base and preparing the AC45 catamaran, which left Valencia by truck on 22 July following an eight day training session in the Spanish port. The first day of sailing for the team will be 1 August, the final shake down before racing commences on 6 August.

'We have been working hard to get up to speed in multihulls over the last six months. In addition to sailing the AC45 and RC44s, we are also cross training in the X40s and D35. Our end game is 24 months from now, but we are looking forward to the start of the America's Cup World Series in just over a week’s time,' said Terry Hutchinson, Skipper of Artemis Racing.

With nine AC45s on the starting line in the Bay of Cascais, the first ACWS promises an exciting week of racing among eight of the world’s best professional sailing teams. The first America’s Cup World Series will consist of four events over nine days: the Cascais America’s Cup Open, the America’s Cup 500 Speed Trial, the America’s Cup Match Racing Championship and finally the America’s Cup World Series Cascais Championship on 14 August.

Drawing from a squad of twenty experienced sailors, Artemis Racing will continue to rotate the crew through the various multihull events on the team’s racing programme in the coming months.
