With a stirring victory in the final Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series event of the year, Artemis Racing rises to fourth place in the overall series rankings, and puts an important marker down in the venue for the 35th America’s Cup in 2017.
Artemis Racing sailed into Bermuda with a lot to prove. The team struggled in the first two events in Portsmouth and Gothenburg, so the recent win was a much-needed one. Team Manager and Tactician, Iain Percy expressed his excitement after the win. “I’m very proud of the team. We had a lot of pressure to perform.”
“We’re a big team, and for every one of the sailors to go out today and perform, is a real boost going into the winter,” said Percy. “You can’t buy that; you can’t put a value on a team knowing 100% that they are here to win this competition. Everyone will be working that little bit harder, and we’re going to have that little spring in our step through the whole winter. It’s going to project us towards winning in 2017.”
Ulysse Nardin, the Official Partner of Artemis Racing, had kind words for the team after the victory: “Artemis Racing’s victory of the ACWS in Bermuda marks an important milestone in our cooperation with the Artemis Racing Team and we are proud to be associated with a team that showed their full talent following a collision with an umpire boat” said Patrik Hoffmann, CEO of Ulysse Nardin.
