TP52 Artemis trains in Palma on the eve of Hublot PalmaVela

The 7th edition of Hublot PalmaVela starts tomorrow and Artemis carried out today their final training session.

The crew onboard the TP52 ARTEMIS includes: Torbjorn Tornqvist (Owner/Skipper), Paul Cayard (Tactician), Michele Ivaldi (Navigator), Noel Drennan (Main), Joe Spooner (Grinder), Robbie Naismith (Trimmer), Daniel Fong (Trimmer), Ian Baker (Grinder), Cameron Appleton (Strategist), Jared Hendersen (Pit), Andy Fethers (Bow) and Cam Marshall (Sewer). Nevertheless, in today's training session, Paul Cayard was replacing Tornqvist at the helm.

Unfortunately, a mere four TP52 yachts will be racing in the Palma bay in this edition of Hublot PalmaVela, after Bribón's non entry (despite being the "flagship" of the Real Club Nautico de Palma) and the last-minute dropout of Russian Synergy due to measurement problems. It seems that after undergoing the required modifications for the 2010 season last winter, the Russian yacht failed to fit within the TP52 box-rule. The participating yachts are Artemis, Matador, Cristabella and Weapon of Choice.

Racing starts on Thursday at noon, local time, and finishes on Sunday with a maximum of 8 scheduled races.
