Artemis Racing Scores a Dramatic Victory in America’s Cup World Series

Team supported by Altair overcomes crash, still fast enough for a come-from-behind victory over top rivals!

This past weekend, Artemis Racing had a breakthrough performance off the coast of Bermuda, overcoming significant damage to their catamaran from a collision with an umpire boat, and still managing an overall victory in the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series stopover in Bermuda. Even after making quick make-shift repairs to the damaged hull, the high-performance catamaran was still fast enough to defeat rivals from OracleBMW and Team New Zealand in the three-race event, proving the team is a top contender to win the America’s Cup.

The full story, including images and video of the crash and recovery, is certainly worth reading from the Sail-World website stories below:
