Sail-World.com : AC World Series - Artemis Racing perseveres under pressure

AC World Series - Artemis Racing perseveres under pressure

'August 12th 2011, AC45 World Series. Fifth day of Racing. Three fleet races followed by match racing.'    Sander van der Borch / Artemis Racing ©    Click Here to view large photo

At the America's Cup World Series in Cascais, Portugal, the weather conditions were perfect and allowed for three fleet races, followed by three match races to be completed.

Artemis Racing was in good form on the race course with second place finishes in the first two races, followed by a fourth in the final fleet race.

These results put the Swedish team in a tie with event leader Emirates Team New Zealand, yet third in the seeding based on count back, which meant match racing against three-time America’s Cup winner Russell Coutts Skipper of Oracle Racing 5.

Skipper Terry Hutchinson had an excellent start in the match race, locking out Oracle Racing Coutts to cross the start line with a five second lead. But a twist in the gennaker on the first run saw Oracle Racing fly by the Swedish team and unfortunately, there was not another chance to get by them.

'It was an awesome team day. Boat handling and crew work were excellent although we are still struggling with our starts. I can’t say enough about the work that the crew are doing – it is great to have this type of support,' said Skipper Terry Hutchinson.

Tomorrow will see Artemis Racing line up against France’s Energy Team in the first match race of the day. Chairman Torbjorn Tornqvist arrived today in Cascais to support the team and will be guest racer onboard the AC45 tomorrow. Racing starts at 1400 GMT.
