HEAD injuries sustained when he was hit by the boom of his yacht, caused the death of a man on Monday, an inquest opening has heard today (Thursday).
The hearing confirmed a brain haemorrhage, as a result of a fractured skull, caused the death of 30-year-old Craig Michael Platt, from Wellington Street, Leeds.
Isle of Wight coroner Caroline Sumeray was told their yacht, en-route to France, was forced to turn back to Cowes, due to rough weather. Mr Platt was hit by the boom, off Gurnard Ledge.
The inquest was adjourned until December 16.
