    Peter, jag följer Blur lite mer oregelbundet så här under vintern, så jag vet inte om du har skrivit om de förberedelser för Americas Cup som pågår på Orust? En kul story, kanske. Det visar sig att min granne lagar mat åt ett stort byggteam inför AC som jobbar på Orust, alla är spanjorer. Förra gången, där Hugo Stenbeck satsade, så var ju alla byggarna övervintrade irländare, alltså de som fann en svensk hustru eller partner när de kom över första gången, då Pelle P skulle bygga Sverige-båten. /Måns

    Det har kommit upp ett antal gånger, men nu händer det ju saker. Det verkar som det är gänget från King Marine som bygger… Jag förlitar mig att någon på plats tar lite bilder i smyg :-)

    In early December, King Marine relocated a portion of its work force to the Artemis Racing operations base, near Gothenburg, Sweden, to begin the construction of the team’s AC72 catamaran designed by Juan Kouyoumidjian. Artemis Racing, Challenger of Record for the 34th America’s Cup, represents the Royal Swedish Yacht Club / Kungliga Svenska Segel Sällskapet (KSSS).

    “We arrived a week ago from Sweden to check on the operations, test the new oven, coordinate logistics and explain the quality standards and storage system of King Marine to the local team of builders,” said Gabriel Mariani, CEO of King Marine.

    A group of 50 specialists from King Marine & King Composite (led by Pablo Santarsiero and Guillermo Ponzinibbio respectively), together with strategic partners Sinergìa Racing Group, will build the AC72 in three different locations: Valencia, Cartagena and Sweden.

    Everything is going according to schedule under the direction of Naval Architect James Muller who has worked with King Marine on the build of the TP52 Azzurra 2011 and the modification of Orma 60 for Artemis Racing.

    Richard Gillies, Build Manager for Artemis Racing, “will control our work as builders, contribute ideas and solutions as well as share his invaluable experience with us.”

    Richard has a career as long as the composite life itself. He ventured before anyone into CNC mould building so it’s great to have him on our side.

    “The action gets underway, but promises to be exciting from the technical and logistical point of view “ assures Gabriel Mariani. “I am grateful to Artemis Racing for trusting us to take on this project, enthusiastic to build once again a JYD design and glad to have a team that gives me peace of mind about their commitment and quality.”
