In the overall standings, Artemis Racing finished 3rd with 82 points behind Emirates Team New Zealand (93 points) in second place and winners ORACLE Team USA Spithill (102 points).

As with all ACWS events, the race for all the points is the Super Sunday fleet race. Challenging conditions saw plenty of lead changes today, but it was Luna Rossa Piranha with Chris Draper at the helm, who took the top prize. Artemis battled through the fleet but an incident at the second windward mark rounding, which later saw ORACLE Team USA Coutts penalized, dealt a tough blow to the team which was difficult to recover from. Artemis finished 7th.

Training and preparations for the 34th America’s Cup continue for Artemis Racing, meanwhile the next event is the RC44 Sweden Cup (July 18-22) in Marstrand followed by the America’s Cup World Series in San Francisco, August 21-26.
