Windstorm Kills Sailor from Gabriola Island

Just saw this sad news in our local paper.

Perhaps our moderator Hummingway has more details, as this is his home base.

Sad indeed. One thing is certain - wiith the temperatures in those waters, he would not have lasted very long before succumbing to hypothermia.
