The America's Cup will go ahead this year despite the death of the Dorset based Olympian Andrew Simpson.
The 36-year-old sailor died after being trapped under water when his Artemis yacht capsized and broke up last Thursday.
Race organisers announced on Wednesday they had appointed a review committee to look into the tragedy.
The 34th America's Cup is set to begin on September the 7th in San Francisco Bay.
