At least Bart died doing something he had a passion for, and was quite good at, by all accounts.
Beats rotting away with cancer or some such, which happens to those his age, too.
I am sure everyone participating in this race feels the loss of Mr Simpson and thinks more about the danger of these boats. I doubt they that any of the participants are having second thoughts on their career choice at this point, even with the recent tragedy. There is a danger in so many things you do in life. The amount of sacrifice the participants in these events have made just to be able to sail for a living, sail as fast as they can and possibly be part of winning AC team; they are not giving that up for anything.
