For Team Nika and Charisma, 2017 started with new tacticians.

Thursday, 03 August 2017

Team Nika saw the return of Terry Hutchinson, while Charisma was joined by Morgan Reeser. Having both taken podium places at the Marstrand Cup in 2015, this World Championship event will be the time when their tactical changes will need to pay off.

However, if there is any team going into the Marstrand World Championship with confidence, it is that of Artemis Racing and Artemis Racing Youth. It's been a busy year for both crews with the 35th America's Cup at the beginning of the season their main focus, but now the dust has settled the teams are sure to up their RC44 game.

With owner Torbjorn Tornqvist at the helm of Artemis Racing with Francesco Bruni as tactician and Artemis Racing Youth helmed by Gustaf Lidvall with tactician Freddie Lööf, the teams are easily the favourites amongst the supporters onshore for the World Championship event.

Returning to the Swedish sailing mecca for the sixth year the RC44 Marstrand Cup will be a cause for great celebration on the picturesque island not only for the RC44 fleet but also for the Dragon and C55 fleet who will be racing over the same weekend.

Join us on to follow the racing live with the first start Thursday 10 August, 12.00 CET.
