Not a great opening day for Artemis Racing at the AC45 WS in Naples, Italy; “It was all going well, and it will be interesting to watch
the video, because we bore off, both hulls went down, it felt relatively safe,
then up on her nose and she went over. Luckily no one’s injured, but the wing’s
injured.

The wing is done. It is absolutely broken, really broken. I’m hoping
that there’s a spare around, potentially we can use the Aleph one that’s not
being used. The boat was so well prepared and sorted for the regatta, and we’ve
been going well in training, so all in all a big disappointment,” said
Skipper Terry Hutchinson.

“It was a balance between racing the boat hard and not putting ourselves
in a position of risk. I don’t really feel like we put ourselves in a position
of risk, but still we ended up on our side. Just… frustrating,”
continued Hutchinson.
