Andrew Simpson death: 'Tragic day today on the Bay'
British Olympic sailor Andrew Simpson has died after a Swedish catamaran capsized during a training session for the America's Cup in San Francisco Bay.
The double-Olympic medallist was one of an 11-man crew on board the Artemis Racing catamaran.
At a news conference on Thursday by the Bay, Artemis chief executive Paul Cayard said it was a "tragic day" for the crew.
