Bad news - Hayling

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

OMG, RIP poor bloke, sounds horrific, out on 15m in that!
According to Chimet archive windspeed went from 17.5mph @ 09:35 up to 31.2mph @ 10:30am.

One would presume not, as it doesn't sound like the rescue boat from CBK attended.

one should not presume until the facts are laid out on the table.

Very sad,
I do know that the 1st chap on scene - he did all he could to save him, threw away a brand new Ronson in the process and sounds like he did everything he possibly could, yet had everything against him, hence the unhappy outcome.
Very sad - thoughts to him as well as to the deceased's family.
Very sad news :-(

Apologies, mph was a deduction/assumption, I believe it's actually in knots meaning 22-25kn up to 31-36kn.
Substantial increase in wind speed and change in direction WSW to WNW then.
Poor guy, not a good scenario and really tough on the bloke trying to rescue him - sounds awful.
My thoughts to the family and all those involved!
