The wreckage and incident is now the subject of two inquiries - one by San Francisco Police Department, and the other by America's Cup Events Authority.

It is not known when either investigation will be concluded or reported.

The ACEA will meet with the four teams on Tuesday in San Francisco May 14, which was a regular, scheduled meeting of the teams, albeit with some new agenda items following the fatal AC72 incident, on Thursday (Pacific time).
