CAPTAIN OF STARRY NIGHT OF THE CARIBBEAN DIES SUDDENLY AT SEA
Tuesday 29th May 2012

We are very saddened to share this press release with you. Starry Night of the Caribbean was a recent participant in Antigua Sailing Week and was on her way back to Europe from Antigua following the regatta. We express our deepest sympathy to Philip's family, friends, crew and the owner of Starry Night.

Press Release:

The Owner of Starry Night, the well travelled Oyster 82, is sad to advise of the sudden death on board of her long term captain and Cork character Philip Scully.

The yacht was on its way to the UK from Antigua when Philip started feeling unwell. He and the crew had full time support from Dr Spike Briggs of MSOS and advanced medical supplies and equipment on board. Despite this and great efforts from the crew, he died in the early hours of 22nd May.

The rest of the crew are well and the weather conditions are good. Starry Night is now on its way to Bermuda and the relevant authorities have been informed.
