    This is truly a tradgedy . 10th person this year. It’s only April for gods sake. People that come to visit our lovely island need to understand and respect the waters that surround us. They are unforgiving be it calm or rough. There is no fault to be lay on anyone with any of this. Sometimes it’s just your time…….rest easy friend. RIP
