PLP Commend Artemis & Morgan’s Agreement

June 7, 2015

“The announcement of the partnership between Team Artemis and Morgan’s Point has created an air of excitement and momentum that bodes well for Morgan’s Point, The America’s Cup and Bermuda,” Shadow Tourism Minister Zane DeSilva said.

“The construction of the training facility for Artemis at Morgan’s Point is welcome news for the construction industry and will hopefully benefit the tourism product at Morgan’s Point for years to come.

“We commend the participants in this partnership for reaching this agreement and wish them much success going forward.

“We hope this encourages other investors and developers to open and/ or continue dialogue with the Morgan’s point Group and we witness further new developments on this most beautiful piece of Bermuda real estate and we see much needed jobs created for our people.”

On June 4th, Artemis Racing — an America’s Cup team from Sweden — confirmed that it will relocate its team base to Morgan’s Point in Bermuda, saying they “look forward to becoming part of the local community in their new Bermudian home.”

Artemis Racing’s plans are already underway to start developing its space on Morgan’s Point, with the team hoping to be fully operational there by early 2016.

In announcing the move, Craig Christensen, President & CEO of Morgan’s Point, said: “We are delighted to welcome Artemis Racing to Morgan’s Point.

“This is a very significant development for Bermuda with the team bringing their full operations to the island. Morgan’s Point is here to assist the America’s Cup in any way we can, to help make this the best event our shores have ever seen.”

    Zane, this is what happens when you welcome Sven with open arms instead of forcing him to hire Johnny as part of his work permit.

    Now Johnny and his cousin have new job opportunities.

      Here we go with the racist code language again…Those southern style tea party like dog whistles never cease to amaze.

      Family man, I get it. Whites should always get the cake and black Bermudians should just accept their natural position as those who get the crumbs.

      White paternalism is good for everyone and it is what made Bermuda great right?

    Did who ever write this for zaney clear it with the rest of the plp?? The last I ever heard the plp was complaining about the $70 million the OBA were supposedly putting up for the AC??? Typical plp, talking out of both sides of their mouths is the one and only thing they ever perfected??? This is just another nuaseating press release from the plp, move along folks, nothing to see here!!!!

    • Mockingjay says:

      U.B.P/oba do the same thing, it’s politricks.
      The complaint was SpoongeBob was crying there’s no money, we are broke and then says we need you to continue Furlough days, and then pulls $77 Million outta thin air, what do you expect people to think.

      • Anbu says:

      • Unbelievable says:

  3. Raymond Ray says:

    Zane, you are a piece of work bie’…Though there’s much more I would / can say I’ll just stick to this old cliche’ “If you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all.”

  4. Terry says:

    He is so full of crap I don’t even have to read the full article.


    Yah all get right?


    And have a blessed day.


    • Zevon says:

      When he says “jobs for our people” he’s referring to super rich owners of large construction firms.

  5. Triangle Drifter says:

    Week old news & the PLP are only just getting around to reluctantly complimenting it.

  6. Sandgrownan says:

    Oh goood, i was waiting to hear what Zane thought of this…

    • jt says:

      Yep. Project can now begin.

      • Anbu says:

        Lets just hope they dont hire his firm. Bet his attitude would change lightning fast lol

  7. Salty says:

    He’s obviously going to be bidding for part of the job.

  8. Redman says:

    I think this is a much more accurate headline.

    PLP Commend Artemis & Morgan’s Agreement… but continue to hope AC fails.

  9. Unbelievable says:

    Zane has zero interest in what is happening with Morgan’s Point, Artemis or anything.

  10. Tolerate says:

    Blah, blah, blah…. Hypocrites. Guess the constant criticism of the AC is not having its affect anymore?
    So now let’s pretend we always supported it.
    Zane go lay down.

  11. Economist says:

    Zane must be getting work out of this!
