AC72 wing damaged during training

Artemis Racing is the first Competitor for the 34th America’s Cup to have launched and sailed with a full size AC72 wing using a modified trimaran.
While training off Valencia today, Artemis Racing’s AC72 wing suffered significant damage. No one was injured.


The team has been sailing with the AC72 wing since 15 March and has gained valuable knowledge about the performance, structure and handling of an AC72 wing.
The wing and boat are back at the Artemis Racing compound where the team is assessing the damage.
“The America’s Cup is about technology and pushing the boundaries. Artemis Racing was the first team to build and sail with an AC72 wing, so it’s logical that we were the first to experience a setback. I am confident that we will be stronger for this,” said Paul Cayard, CEO of Artemis Racing.
