In extremely fluky conditions, Artemis Racing took the first win of the event in what was a race of snakes and ladders. Then in the second race, the Swedish team finished fourth, to claim second place overall on count back for the day, tied on points with Emirates Team New Zealand.

Commenting on today’s racing Skipper Terry Hutchinson said, “It was about being in the right place at the right time today. It was a bit cold and wet. They say it is never like this here so it is good to get this out of the way this weekend!”

“Days like today are very good practice and training. That is what it is all about. We also continue to be mindful of how good the people are around us. We have two new guys on the boat here as part of our ongoing crew rotation plan, so it is as much about racing the AC45 as it is about preparing for the America’s Cup in San Francisco.
