I just talked with a friend of mine and it was Vincenzo. Details are sketchey but he spun in front of another boat and was hit in the cockpit.
Thats all I know.

This has some detail on the tragedy.

Congrats to laith. He finished the season 2nd in World Championship points. If he can continue to improve he'll be the first Offshore and Inshore world champion ever.
