The organisers of the America's Cup have announced that all teams have been asked to suspend sailing following the death of the Dorset sailor, Andrew Simpson, last week. The America's Cup Review Committee made the decision at its first meeting last night.
The teams have been asked to suspend sailing in the AC72 and smaller AC45 catamarans until the middle of next week. The committee will meet with the teams in San Francisco, California later today.
