ARTEMIS win the Audi MedCup - Barcelona
Two fantastic runs in succession, showing solid boathandling, great boat speed and acute calls from tactician Cameron Appleton ensured the Swedish flagged team win their first regatta in more than two years. With a one point lead going into today’s one and only race, Paul Cayard and crew looked to have a mountain to climb when the breeze bent right on the first beat and they were left, but they kept their composure.
Twice they split away from the lead group on the runs and both times they reaped a dividend, showing great sustained downwind speed in the brisk southerly sea-breeze.
Needing to finish immediately behind Emirates Team New Zealand, at one stage the Kiwi circuit leaders looked like they had enough, with Luna Rossa between the two challengers. But on the final run, Artemis not only passed the Italian team, but the Kiwis and TeamOrigin to clinch the regatta title in style.
Bribón were the first to recognise the right shift and were able to lead from start to finish, winning their first race here in Barcelona and securing fifth overall.
