America’s Cup officials refund bleacher tickets 

America's Cup officials are refunding grandstand tickets for races through the Louis Vuitton semifinals due to the uncertainty of when challenger Artemis Racing will be ready to compete following the deadly capsize of its first boat last month.

Artemis said last week it plans to launch a new boat in early July and hopes to be able to race by the end of the month.

That leaves only two challengers to race in the early round-robins, Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa of Italy.

Depending on when Artemis returns, there could be just five days of racing between July 7-Aug. 1.
