Published on Aug 24, 2015: “It’s an incredibly proud moment for Artemis Racing and all of Sweden to be hosting the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series,” Percy said. But after a disappointing result at the inaugural event in Portsmouth last month, he is looking for his team to improve this time out. “We need to have slicker boat-handling.
