America's Cup: Artemis to face Team NZ in challenger finals

“We definitely didnt feel like we had it set up quite 100 per cent because the breeze was going up and down, we were kind of chasing it all day.

"To win the Louis Vuitton America's Cup World Series outright as a rookie team and to successfully launch the Land Rover BAR Academy, also competing here in Bermuda, are real highlights for Land Rover".

The Brits tried to get back to the dock to replace the wing. Three races will be scheduled in each of two brackets in this best-of-nine knockout round.

"We can simplify it and try and hold this every two years".

SoftBank Team Japan's challenge for the 35th America's Cup ended, as the team fell to Swedish Challenger Artemis Racing in a thrilling semi-final matchup in Bermuda.

Despite the obvious disappointment, Ainslie however expressed his pride at the team's performance in their first America's Cup campaign, and vowed to keep progressing towards the next event. "It's a big family team here", Outteridge said. "It's been nice to have Japan back in the America's Cup", Barker said, declining to commit his own future.

Team New Zealand won both races against Artemis in the round robins.

Emirates Team New Zealand reached the America's Cup challenger final on Thursday, shaking off the scary capsize that threatened their quest to end the challenge of Ben Ainslie's Land Rover BAR.

While skipper Glenn Ashby is a master on the wheel of a catamaran, his speciality in controlling the massive wingsail would likely see him remain in charge of that.

Artemis Racing was a new syndicate four years ago but was devastated when Simpson was killed when its 72-foot catamaran broke apart during a training run in May 2013.

"These boats are so tough to sail, they're on the edge the whole time and there's a lot of respect amongst sailors amongst how hard that is".

Team New Zealand had just pulled ahead of Artemis when Outteridge took a swim. "Three of them were still in the boat after it capsized, while three were thrown from it".

Moments after the Land Rover BAR and Emirates Team New Zealands second start, Land Rover BAR cleanly executed a bear-away and began flying. Their speed went from went from 25 knots to zero, and within a split second the mast slammed forward and the cats hulls pitch-poled into the water.
