The eighth leg of the America’s Cup World Series drew to close in Toulon yesterday (September 11), with the French event having a major impact on the overall standings.
The overall winner was Artemis Racing, led by skipper Nathan Outteridge. The Swedish team won the first two races as well as Race Four and this, coupled with two third place finishes, clinched first place in the overall standings for Toulon.
“We had a very good day on Saturday but to back it up with another strong performance on Sunday is obviously very pleasing,” Outteridge said afterwards. “It was pretty obvious that we weren’t really up to it at the start of the series, but it feels like we’re on the right way up.”
