|Iain Percy to race in Plymouth AC45|
Plymouth, 9th September 2011 - As they prepare for the second America's Cup World Series event that kicks off in Plymouth this weekend, so Torbjorn Tornqvist's Swedish flagged Artemis Racing team have announced their crew line-up. Sailing with skipper Terry Hutchinson (USA), wing trimmer Sean Clarkson (NZL), trimmer Morgan Trubovich (NZL) and bowman Andy Fethers (AUS) will be joined by British tactician Iain Percy.
"Plymouth will be my first event on the AC45," said Percy. "I have been out training on the AC45 a few times and it has been a fantastic ride, so am really looking forward to mixing it up with our fellow competitors. Plymouth will be a great venue with flat water and many viewing areas around the Bay for the spectators. September is often a windy month here in the UK, so for sure there will be plenty of action!"
Artemis Racing's debut in the ACWS - Cascais wrapped up well, with the Swedish team finishing 2nd in the World Championship race, just one point behind Emirates Team New Zealand in the overall standings.
