Artemis Racing team back in water after deadly accident
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The Swedish-based Artemis Racing team is back in the water for the first time since a deadly accident.
The new America's Cup boat launched during a private ceremony Monday morning.
The crew will practice this week and return to racing August 6.
Artemis removed itself from racing after crew-member Andrew Simpson was killed during a training exercise last May.
Artemis delayed its return to racing to run tests on the new boat to make sure it's safe.
