'Rusalka' Open 60 as "Artemis the profit hunter"

Significant development was undertaken under the direction of Mike Sanderson, including a conversion from single central daggerboard to twin asymmetric boards, and conversion of rig to removeable genoa with halyard lock system -now common amongst the fleet

Prior to the TJV 2008 the keel was replaced and has been sailed on for approx. 8,000 miles. During that race, as “Artemis 1”, she was dismasted and a new formula spars rig was built and stepped.

In 2010 she went through an extensive refit during which; in addition to general servicing, the decks, topsides, bottom and appendages were re-sprayed and the keel modified. Hydraulics overhauled, engine and saildrive replaced, interior redesigned and galley fitted, and much more. In all a quarter of a million pound refit.

Her schedule over the past 2 years has seen her performed more of a corporate function and has covered few miles offshore and has been well maintained by the Artemis Ocean Racing team.
