Artemis Racing Dominate Practice Racing

Swedish syndicate Artemis Racing continued their strong buildup to the America's Cup, dominating the latest official practice racing in Bermuda.

Three days of racing in medium to heavy winds were completed on Wednesday with Artemis emerging with an unblemished 9-0 record.

In the opening phase of practice racing Artemis had finished second behind defenders Oracle.

Team New Zealand have missed these sessions and their AC50 has just arrived in Bermuda. They will have to decide if they join the next series of races to be held on April 24-28.

The actual challengers series starts on May 27 and Artemis are growing increasingly comfortable with local conditions.

"We've had a really good race period here in Bermuda, all five teams on the island have been racing hard. We've had some really close battles, really close starting," Artemis helmsman Nathan Outteridge said.

"Tacking duels around the course forcing umpires to make decisions, it's everything we expect it's going to be come May and June. It's going to be close and we're just working on getting better and better each day."
