Youth Team in Bermuda

2017-03-15 - America's Cup Just nu förbereder sig Artemis Racing på Bermuda inför sommarens America's Cup och Youth America's Cup. Här är en lägesrapport från en av Youth-teamets coacher, Fredrik Lööf.

”We really been having a positive time in Bermuda and I have full faith in the Youth team. We are now on day 13 and still pushing hard and the focus is very present. We have so far done 6 days of sailing in our AC45 f and have one day to go. Day 7 tomorrow morning and hope to have good condition for using the Code zero and push really hard on the last session. I also want to mention that the whole Artemis team is behind our effort to really achieve a good result during the Red Bull event.

Just a little Eye opener for whats happening over the next few weeks, actually its 100 days today to the start of the event. Most guys are really busy with there own racing but the plan is too have a high focus 3-4 weeks before our departure to Bermuda.The plan is end of April train in the Moth. We would like to do some M32 sailing at KSSS followed by the qualifier in Gothenburg to the Marstrand event(this is massive that we got an invite) and then we also would like to race the M32 event in Stockholm in May.

I believe with this plan the guys can perform on a really high level. We can win this event if we follow this plan.  We basically need to make sure that we can deliver this platform to our sailors. This is a must!

I would like to high light a few sailors in the team. Rasmus at the helm is a really really good driver. He is in super fit condition and the pressure for him is not an issue. I think this is a new super star in sailing Sweden. Julius, he is just a super good crew with incredible fitness abilities and done really well with the A-team hear in Bermuda. This is a guys for the future, no question. Gustav which is trimming the wing is truly the right person as a skipper,takes the responsibility of the team in the best way. Marcus as a trimmer has the eagerness of performing and his experience from the 49er is vital for the team. 

It is so much more to say But I stop for now. Lets make this into a big memory”
