Famed British sailor Andrew "Bart" Simpson has died after the catamaran he was on capsized.
The tragic event occurred in the San Francisco Bay on Thursday while Simpson and the Swedish team Artemis were training for the upcoming America's Cup, ABC News reports.
The 72-foot boat flipped and trapped Simpson underwater for about 10 minutes. The other crew members managed to jump off the boat as it capsized and swim toward support boats.
