SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The America's Cup will go on as planned after the death of a sailor during a training run last week on San Francisco Bay.

America's Cup officials made the announcement at a news conference in San Francisco on Tuesday afternoon. The officials also said they expected all four entrants to compete, including Artemis Racing.

One of Artemis' two boats was badly damaged when it capsized and broke into pieces Thursday. Strategist Andrew 'Bart" Simpson was trapped under the wreckage for more than 10 minutes and was pronounced dead shortly after the accident.
