34th America’s Cup Swedish challenger Artemis Racing has a new addition to the team’s fleet of multihulls, a Decision 35. This high-tech, one design catamaran built purely of carbon fibre was designed especially for lake racing, well suited to the conditions on Lake Geneva.

Artemis Racing will line up against 11 other teams in this competitive one design class, including Ernesto Bertarelli’s Alinghi. The team’s inaugural regatta will be the Grand Prix Les Ambassadeur event that takes place from 6-8 May on Lake Geneva.
Artemis Racing Chairman Torbjorn Tornqvist will helm the D35 for the majority of the regattas this season including the prestigious Bol d’Or on 18 June.
'The D35 is yet another opportunity for Artemis Racing to broaden the team’s multihull experience. We are looking forward to meeting all of the great sailors in the fleet,' said Paul Cayard, CEO of Artemis Racing.
The crew onboard Artemis Racing for the Grand Prix Les Ambassadeur regatta includes Paul Cayard (Helmsman), Julien Cressant, Rodney Ardern, Yvan Ravussin and Pierre Pennec. Artemis Racing website
