PRESS RELEASE

Loick Peyron joins Artemis Racing

Alameda, CA – November 1, 2012 – Artemis Racing, Challenger of Record for the 34th America’s Cup, announced today that French multihull legend Loïck Peyron will sail with the Swedish team during this month’s AC72 training.

“It is fantastic to have Loïck join Artemis Racing. Loïck has no peer when it comes to large multihulls.” said Paul Cayard, CEO of Artemis Racing. “As we have seen, these AC72’s will be a real challenge here on San Francisco Bay and having someone of Loïck’s experience will certainly be advantageous.”

Peyron has an extensive background of achievements in multihulls in both inshore and offshore racing. In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s he won the ORMA Championship four times, the Single-handed Transatlantic Race three times, and just this year won the Jules Verne Trophy setting the record for the fastest circumnavigation of the globe in just 45 days. Peyron has been the skipper for Energy Team France in the 2012 America’s Cup World Series (ACWS).

“I look forward to working with these great guys in San Francisco. Thanks to my new role with Artemis Racing, Energy Team will be gaining the experience of the 34th America’s Cup at the highest level,” said Loïck Peyron. The Peyron brothers and their Energy Team will continue with the AC45 on the ACWS circuit next year and are aiming to participate in the 35th America’s Cup.

  1. Sólo un simple comentario: “The Peyron brothers and their Energy Team will continue with the AC45 on the ACWS circuit next year and are aiming to participate in the 35th America’s Cup”. Eso, si es que la 35a se disputa en los catamaranes AC72, pero si esta Copa América, la 34a, es ganada por Emirates Team New Zealand, y la 35a, se vuelve a diputar en monocascos (por ejemplo, los AC90, que Alinghi tenía diseñados, antes del fiasco de la 33a Copa América, el año 2010), los hermanos Peyron y su equipo, van a volver a participar, o sólo participan en la Copa por que se disputa en catamaranes?

    Si alguien sabe, sería interesante saber cúal es el plan del Energy Team, en caso de que la Copa América vuelva a los monocascos. Si alguien tiene el dato, espero respuestas.

    Saludos,
