    Yachting

    Former America's Cup skipper Terry Hutchinson backed down from his contention Artemis Racing was sailing an unsafe catamaran when it capsized on San Francisco Bay, killing Andrew "Bart" Simpson on May 9, 2013. In an interview with Maxim magazine earlier this month, he was quoted as saying he "had a massive falling out with the owner of the team and the CEO about the safety of our yacht so they decided to terminate me. Ten weeks after my argument with the owner, the boat capsized and one of the sailors was killed. It was a known thing that the boat was not safe." On Friday, Hutchinson said on his Facebook page that the Maxim interview "included some untrue statements and inaccurate remarks I made about Artemis Racing. To be clear, Artemis Racing is a well-organized and responsible professional sailing team that considers safety an absolute priority."
