ARTEMIS RACING QUALIFIES FOR SEMI FINALS San Diego, CA (November 16, 2011) – Artemis Racing has advanced into the Semi Final of the AC World Series Match Racing Championship in San Diego, beating a red hot Aleph team to join the final four. The last match of the day was a cat and mouse affair, the result in doubt until the very end, but finally, Artemis Racing prevailed.

Aleph skipper Pierre Pennec led his crew into battle five times on Thursday (although only four counted), bullying his way through the fleet from the lowest seeded pair. After dispatching China Team, Team Korea and ORACLE Racing Coutts, Aleph ran out of magic in the match against Terry Hutchinson and Artemis.

Artemis Racing joins Energy Team, Emirates Team New Zealand, and ORACLE Racing Spithill in the Semi Finals, each of whom previously qualified via the seeding races on Wednesday.

A thick fog that enveloped San Diego Bay burned off by mid-morning, allowing a light 7-10 knot sea breeze to build. But by early afternoon, the fog settled in again, dropping the temperature and keeping the wind light and shifty in the bay. — Full story: http://tinyurl.com/89vnvpy
