"This is a great day for many reasons. It is the culmination of a heroic effort to put together this beautiful boat.The shore team has put so much into this, and now our sailing team can get out there and give her justice. I am proud to share with you this great moment." said Team owner Torbjörn Törnqvist.

The Blue Boat, christened Artemis Racing, will now be fixed with Wing #3 and undergo the dock tune process, which will set the boat up for sailing. This mainly consists of mounting the wing and adjusting all the rigging to proper tensions and lengths. There is also an in-the-water run through of the onboard systems, including wing control, daggerboards, steering and other equipment.
