Sailor drowns at Blakely Island

Lot's of boats in our little marina last night prior to the Around the County race. My son and I went out in the power boat to watch the start in 20-30 knots of wind, lot's of spinnaker malfunctions and round ups. We got back into the marina and the Sheriff's boat was tying up right across from our slip. Apparently the owner of one of the racing boats went missing about midnight and hadn't shown up by race time this morning. The divers were called in and they found his body not far from his boat this afternoon. Very sad for his family and friends and it's hit our little community on the island pretty hard as well.

He was last seen walking down the dock toward his boat shortly after midnight. I'll update the thread when I know more.

Sad indeed. Another reminder of why to be careful out there.

Crewmember here. It looks like our skipper had a misstep on the side of the dock and likely hit his head. We were distracted in the boat and figured he went back up the dock. Its been a 24hr nightmare we cant wake up from. Docks are dangerous, especially when we spend enough time on them and get too comfortable. He's going to be missed by a lot of good people. Send healing thoughts to his family, wife, and boy.
jrd22, bubb2 and nemier like this.

We were out with our club racing and could see you guys on the horizon near Stuart Island.
I am sorry to hear this very sad news.
