Practice day saw Artemis go for a swim, others came perilously close. Saturday sees similar conditions for day 1 of the LV ACWS Gothenburg Event
There is an air of tension around the dockside here in Gothenburg as the six teams prepare for the first of two days racing. The practice races on Friday saw many of the teams have some hairy moments, coming close to a capsize. For Artemis the worst happened and they went for a swim damaging their wing in the process.
But there was damage elsewhere in the fleet too and with conditions forecast to be similar to yesterday, crews nervous about today’s racing.
Here’s an intro from the dockside and the excellent AC highlight video of practice day.
