The Minnesota man who died last week when he was thrown from his sailboat during a regatta on a Wisconsin lake was identified Sunday by his family.
Henry Marwood "Woody" Baskerville III, of Chaska, died Thursday while racing on Lake Kegonsa, his family said in an online and print obituary.
He was thrown from his sailboat about 7:15 p.m. Thursday, authorities said last week. Fellow boaters who came to his rescue said he was alert when they reached him, but as they pulled him onto a pontoon boat, he lost consciousness. He was taken to a hospital in Stoughton, Wis., where he was pronounced dead.
Sheriff's deputies said he was wearing an auto-inflate life vest at the time.
In his obituary, family members said Baskerville, a stockbroker, entrepreneur and "champion sailor," died "doing what he loved." His funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Westwood Church, 3121 Westwood Drive, Excelsior.
