2 ambulances were mobilised to the incident alongside an ambulance officer and Ventnor Coastguard Rescue Team. The Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance was also called but was stood down en-route as it became clear there was nothing more that could be done to save the man’s life.

The male was pronounced dead upon arrival at St Mary’s Hospital. His death is not being treated as suspicious and his next of kin have been informed.

Knowing the joy of sailing myself, I hope and expect his family will gain some comfort, given time, that he had that one last glorious day before his life was so sadly lost.

Wish them strength.
