Artemis Racing to Compete in Louis Vuitton Cup Semi Finals - Artemis Racing - August, 2013, Alameda, USA
Artemis Racing, representing the Royal Swedish Yacht Club, will make its Louis Vuitton Cup debut tomorrow. The team will face Luna Rossa in a best-of-seven Semi Final series scheduled to start at 1:15PM PST. The winner of this series will race against Emirates Team New Zealand in the Louis Vuitton Cup Finals beginning August 17th.

In the past two months, Artemis Racing's shore team has worked seven days a week preparing and testing the team's second AC72, "Big Blue", which was launched on July 22, 2013. A new wing was also completed to accompany the new boat. "It has taken an extraordinary commitment by the shore team to put Big Blue on the race track tomorrow. I have huge admiration for them," commented Paul Cayard, CEO of Artemis Racing.
