America's Cup teams on board despite fatal accident

America's Cup officials said Tuesday the premier yacht race is on course to take place as planned despite the death of a veteran sailor from the Swedish team during training last week. All four teams slated to duel on San Francisco Bay in powerful AC72 boats remain on board for a competition that begins in July with Louis Vuitton Cup matches, which will decide who takes on the champion Oracle crew in September. "The America's Cup will go ahead this summer," the Cup's external affairs director Tom Eihman said during a press briefing at Pier 27 in San Francisco.
