Artemis undertakes testing on new boat

4:52 pm on 25 July 2013

The Swedish syndicate Artemis Racing has had its first test sail in their new boat.

Artemis Racing's first yacht capsized and broke apart in May and crewman Andrew Simpson died.

The crew carried out a number of load tests on their couple of hours on San Francisco Bay.

The team has targeted the first day of the challenger series semi-finals on August 7th as their date to start racing.
