A sailor, rescued from the water at Osborne Bay earlier today, has died at Cowes Week.
According to local sources, Emergency Services were called after a man in his 60s was thrown into the water from an RS Elite class yacht.
A witness said the man had been crewing the yacht before ending up in the water. He was picked up by a RIB and brought ashore.
The police said the man was taken to St Mary's Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. His next of kin have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.
His death is not being treated as suspicious and investigations are ongoing.
