Artemis skipper falls overboard in Cup challenger finals

Artemis Racing made the ideal response in the second match, leading from start to finish in a highly tactical race to get off the mark and even the series at 1-1.

The Kiwi helmsman claimed a 2-1 lead in the Challengers Series finals after Artemis lost their skipper to Bermuda's Great Sound.

"It didn't go all our way in that race either, we had our own battles, but really happy to take it through to the next round", he said. Rival helmsman Peter Burling had been in the process of creating another come from behind lead change at mark five when the drama unfolded and with the Swedes retiring he sailed unopposed to the finish.

Burling, an Olympic gold and silver medalist, said the shore team "dug pretty deep" to get the boat back on the water at close to 100 percent. He played up on Burling's Achilles Heel as some mind games started to enter a personal rivalry that goes back to the London Olympics.

"The main emotion is an huge pride in what we have achieved in two years. we started with nothing", Barker told a televised news briefing.

"We're absolutely stoked", Outteridge said shortly after clinching the win.

The result takes Team New Zealand once step closer to a Cup Match with Team USA, with a flawless showing on Sunday - in the lighter breezes forecast for Bermuda - enough to send them through. Race two, taking him off the course and the third race rolling him off the reach.

"Obviously we made a few mistakes after that but we can deal with that". These boats are turning quite quickly and in an effort to get crew weight up quite quickly out of the tack, we sprint across.

Artemis has simplified its approach, Outteridge said, and got a pep talk from the stoic Percy, who serves as team manager and tactician.

The teams split at the leeward gate; Artemis going right and Kiwis left.
