Sail-World.com : Dinghy danger: Crewman dies, no life jacket
Dinghy danger: Crewman dies, no life jacket

'Musketeer of Stutton and innocent dinghy'    .

The crew of the 47ft Musketeer of Stutton had been enjoying an evening ashore this week, and began the normal dinghy tender shuttle that would take them back to the boat.

It was just before midnight, the seas were rough and the winds were high, but it was a transfer they had done many times before.

When the dinghy didn't arrive back after delivering some of the crew, crew waiting on the beach called the Coastguard for help, thinking 'that the outboard engine may have failed'. They couldn't have guessed that their crew mate had drowned.


In the rough seas, high winds and poor visibility, the search of Poole and Studland Bays of Dorset in the UK involved both Swanage RNLI lifeboats, Lee-on-Solent Coastguard helicopter and the Coastguard rescue teams from Swanage and Poole, and Dorset Police.

Initially recovered by lifeboat, the sailor, who was found not wearing a lifejacket, was unconscious, found floating near his upturned dinghy.

He was given CPR before being transferred to Poole Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
