Philip Walwyn Champion In Fatal Accident

My appologies if this is somewhere in CF already, but I couldn't find it with the search engine.


Champion yachtsman dies after being found near his missing yacht - MySailing.com.au

This situation highlights the importance of safety..


"Mr Walwyn, who was known for refusing to wear a life vest, was subsequently found nearby in “very serious condition” and died shortly after being airlifted to hospital"

... try the 'Google Custom Search' within the CF Search next time. Also had to get used to it but it is great (and should be the first choice in the search options I think).

Regards,

Carsten

Brilliant. That's pretty good. I didn't know about that one. I just thought it was a normal google search.
