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.
