In the America’s Cup World Series Plymouth, Artemis Racing have put on a repeat performance from yesterday with two first place finishes and a second today, to wrap up the Fleet Racing in pole position.

Tactician Iain Percy summed up the keys to today’s success on the water for the Swedish team; 'The team is starting to gel and we had great starts. We were hitting the line at speed and were always up there at the top mark.'

'Today was a good improvement, we’ve worked well on our weaknesses but we still have a long way to go. There is also still a lot on the table. That’s encouraging,' said Wing trimmer Sean Clarkson (NZL). 'Morgan and Sean had the boat set up really nicely. We are fine-tuning and making our systems better, so it’s good to see some of the work we’ve done pay off. The boat is going very well, that helps when you make a reasonable decision as things go even better,' said Skipper Terry Hutchinson.

'I am incredibly respectful of those we are racing against. On any given day, anyone can win races. Our time on distance to the start line is better, so is our boat speed, but we are still miles from where we want to be,' continued Terry. 'We see every day of racing as an opportunity to get better. Working on continuous improvement on how we sail the boat.'

Artemis Racing has earned a bye for tomorrow’s racing but will be out training with Emirates Team New Zealand early on and potentially Green Comm as well.

'No day off tomorrow,' said Skipper Terry Hutchinson. 'We’ll go out and go sailing. It would be a mistake to rest. It’s not every day we get to go multihull sailing. It’s nice to have the short term victory, but we will go out and practice. We have to keep putting the hours in.'

Racing continues tomorrow for the other eight teams and for Artemis Racing on Saturday for the Match Racing semi-finals.
