Artemis Racing's Törnqvist Joins the Team on the AC45 Artemis Racing
America's Cup related, Torbjörn Törnqvist, owner of the Swedish-flagged Artemis Racing - the Challenger of Record for the 34th America's Cup - has arrived in San Francisco to meet with the team for the second time in the last month, train, and get some on-the-water time aboard a foil-borne AC45. According to reports, Törnqvist wasted little opportunity before logging some AC45 tiller time and catching his first ride on foils.
'It has been great to be together with the team, and I am impressed with what they've been able to accomplish under such difficult circumstances,' said Törnqvist. 'There is clearly still a lot of work to do, but safety remains the central consideration.' Check out the multimedia report, inside this issue.
