Artemis Racing officially launched what they're calling the "Blue Boat" at a christening ceremony Monday morning that was attended by nearly 300 team members, family and friends, according to a news release on the team's America's Cup website. The Alameda Point-based Artemis' shore team has worked for two months to construct the new boat, following the capsize of the team's first yacht during a practice session on May 9. Maritime Report blogger Dave Bloch shared these photos; additional pictures are available at the link.
