Another SAILOR DEAD with only two on BOARD

One dead after yacht capsizes near Cronulla.

A man has died after a sailing boat capsized off Sydney’s south AUSTRALIA, the morning 24 th September 2018.

Emergency services were alerted after a woman swam to shore from the capsized vessel at Boat Harbour, near Kurnell, about 5am (Monday 24 September 2018).

A search began involving the NSW Ambulance helicopter and NSW Water Police, and at 5.48am the body of a man was sighted near Wanda Beach.

The man was winched to shore by NSW Ambulance helicopter but couldn’t be revived.
The woman has been treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics and is now in Sutherland Hospital Sydney AUSTRALIA under observation.

An inquiry is now underway by officers from Sutherland Police Area Command and Marine Area Command.

It’s unknown if either of those on board were wearing lifejackets.

When this is determined will post.
