Artemis: Hutchinson Out

Things are not smooth right now at Artemis racing. Throwing all the experience Terry has grabbed in the AC45s and winning the MR series is incredible. As for instance I would have retain him as tactician or as part of the crew, even to train Peryon and Outteridge in MR.

AR AC72 seems to have a conf that will let them maneuver in the start, as I guess the foil setup of ETNZ/LR will be somehow draggy in that situation, and although I remarked several times the Terry should have put more beachcat hours beyond the 45s, he still won the Match Racing series fair and square without being the finest multihull helm.

But of course once the race started speed might overcome any smart move at the start line, as happened in AC33 with Alinghi and US17 Winged Tri.
