Artemis Racing came across an Umpire boat going the wrong way, against the flow of traffic at the start of Race 2 of the America's Cup World Series, Bermuda.

The umpire boat became lodged between the hulls of the AC45 and was extracted by an Artemis racing crew member.

Ricardo Pinto captured the action in stills and we also have the on-board video
