Artemis TP52 in Team NZ base, ready for launch

[Source: Sail World NZ] The second of two TP52's in as many weeks has emerged from Cookson Boats and is being fitted prior to launching on Tuesday at Auckland's Viaduct harbour.

The Judel & Vrolijk TransPac 52 is the third for owner Torbjorn Tornqvist (SWE) and the tenth TP52 to be built by Cooksons.

Artemis features spars by nearby Southern Spars and sails by North Sails NZ.

After launching on Tuesday she will start a two boat work up campaign with Emirates Team NZ through to the end of the month, when the yachts will be shipped to Valencia for the start of the AUDI MedCup circuit.
