“It is fantastic to have Loïck join Artemis Racing. Loïck has no peer when it comes to large multihulls.” said Paul Cayard, CEO of Artemis Racing. “As we have seen, these AC72 AC72 #AC72 ’s will be a real challenge here on San Francisco Bay and having someone of Loïck’s experience will certainly be advantageous.”
Peyron has an extensive background of achievements in multihulls in both inshore and offshore racing. In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s he won the ORMA Championship four times, the Single-handed Transatlantic Race three times, and just this year won the Jules Verne Trophy setting the record Record #sailingrecord for the fastest circumnavigation of the globe in just 45 days. Peyron has been the skipper for Energy Team France in the 2012 America’s Cup America's Cup #AmericasCup World Series (ACWS).
"I look forward to working with these great guys in San Francisco. Thanks to my new role with Artemis Racing, Energy Team will be gaining the experience of the 34th America’s Cup America's Cup #AmericasCup at the highest level," said Loïck Peyron.
The Peyron brothers and their Energy Team will continue with the AC45 AC45 #AC45 on the ACWS circuit next year and are aiming to participate in the 35th America’s Cup.
