Artemis Racing has announced the addition of 2012 Olympic medalists Iain Jensen and Andrew Simpson as well as 2016 Olympic hopeful John Gimson. The newcomers will join the team's decorated Olympians Percy, Lange, Outteridge, and Monk.

Jensen and Gimson will provide sailing and training support for the team including maintenance and logistics for the team's AC45 and F18 fleet, while Simpson will provide weather and tactics support to the afterguard.

'The experience we have on the sailing team, balanced with the youth and enthusiasm John, Iain and Andrew bring to the team is a good mix for us,' said Sailing Team Director Iain Percy.

Iain Jensen, as crew for Nathan Outteridge, won the Gold Medal in the 49er class in last summer’s games in London. Iain is a 49er world champion in 2009 and 2011 and a 49er European champion in 2011. His accolades include winning 'Sail for Gold' in ‘09, ‘10, and ’12.

John Gimson is campaigning to represent Great Britain in the Nacra 17 in the Rio 2016 Olympic games. He has received many podium finishes ranging from the TP52 and Extreme 40 class to the Star, Etchells and Melges 24s.

Andrew Simpson medaled in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics in the Star Class as crew for Artemis Racing Sailing Team Director Iain Percy winning a gold and silver medal. Simpson brings his experience from +39 Challenge and Team Origin America’s Cup teams to his role with Artemis Racing.

'As an America’s Cup team, we are investing in the team’s future with guys like Andrew, Iain, John and Nathan,' said Artemis Racing CEO Paul Cayard. 'These young sailors bring talent and enthusiasm to our team. They are the future of the America’s Cup.'
