Investigation continues into youth death

Published on November 23rd, 2020

Details remain limited on how 10 year old green fleet Optimist sailor Ethan Isaacs died due to a collision with another boat during sailing practice on November 21 in Sarasota, FL. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is in charge of the investigation and said it was windy at the time of the crash, however, they haven’t said whether that played a role, nor did they say whether the boats that collided were both sailboats or another boat that may have crashed into the youth class of sailors.
