36-year-old Ryan McKinlay has been named as the victim of Friday’s Osborne Bay motor boat collision
Police have named the victim of Friday’s Osborne Bay motor boat collision as Ryan McKinlay, 36 from Gosport (pictured above).
Ryan was travelling on board a Williams RIB, which was being used as a tender for True Blue, a Fairline Targa 62.
At this stage, it is unclear whether the vessel is privately owned or chartered, but Cowes RNLI reports that 12 people were on board the Fairline.
Details around the Osborne Bay crash are scarse, but Hampshire Constabulary confirmed that at least two other people were on board the tender at the time of collision (roughly 1700).
Gosport and Fareham Independent Lifeboat crew were first to respond, administering CPR and providing oxygen on the swim platform of the Fairline, before the stricken tender was towed to Cowes.
Ryan was airlifted to St Mary’s Hospital on the Isle of Wight and pronounced dead later that evening. His next of kin were informed shortly afterwards.
A post-mortem examination will now be carried out, before the Osborne Bay incident is referred to the Marine Accident Investigation Bureau for an official report.
