RGSC official announcement
This is the official email sent by the RGSC regarding this weekend's incident. To protect the family's privacy, names have been removed, and I can not at this time give more information than is provided in public records.
It is the Rio Grande Sailing Club's deepest regret to report a tragic accident and our apparent loss of a dear friend, kind man, and generous sailor.
We will all very much miss him.
Much is still unknown and up in the air. Trail Boss has undertaken the job of coordinating news and will provide information as it becomes available. We don't know yet when that might be. The accident has come as a terrible shock to the family, and they need private time during the difficult wait for news.
The next planned regatta weekend, the Joshua Slocum single-hand race and Jack and Jill his and hers race, has been indefinitely postponed.
Please be patient and keep the family and friends in your prayers and best wishes.
Rio Grande Sailing Club
