This radio interview is from way back in October but it’s worth a re-listen in part for how, despite all the effort the interviewer makes to turn the subject towards an Australian Challenge, Nathan keeps bringing it back to Artemis. Even back then, he’d already had discussions with TT and with IP about how they might plan the next campaign, about how Artemis has ‘unfinished business,’ about TT’s hope that high performance foiling would continue in AC36, and about waiting to see the actual Design Rule before deciding for certain. It could all have been clairvoyant even back then.
The March 12 ‘Artemis Technologies’ News post linked above ^^^ is encouraging too and ‘Simon Watin, Head of Simulation’ quoted in there was a Designer with AR in AC35 and came from VPLP before that. No need to be setting up a team of that nature if the racing plans include just RC44’s... And as many have noted, Nathan and Goobs have been SuperFoiling, not RC44’ing, in a boat that Ashby says is currently the closest boat on the planet to a JC75..
It's real, there are plenty of videos and news articles about it.
But it is battery-electric not H-powered and so who knows if they can convert that same boat to also use H. It's also hard to tell if it meets the other requirements, including the 10m LOA or LWL or whatever. It does look more 'industrial' and usable than what ChaseZero does but maybe Artemis will offer some different, custom options to the three AC teams talking to them?
Iirc from the Protocol teams are not required to have them running until summer of '24, in BCN. The Prot also describes how a plan for how the H cannisters will be provided, but the details are still TBD.

RS Electric Boats has joined forces with Cheetah Marine International to develop a new generation of electric workboats.
This offering from Artemis looks cool, but I am unsure how much use the foiling aspect is as they they will also need flat water. I can't see being able to blast along a canal at 34 knots or within a harbour either being allowed by the local authorities or being that massive of a selling point for a CTV vessel.
