Saw an NBC news story titled "Beer Can Race Turns Deadly as Yachts Hits Buoy".

 

In an accident associated with Sequoia YC's race last night, Bella, a Catalina 42, loses its mast and hits  a buoy. One dead, one injured.

 

Anyone have more details?

Seems they snagged a day mark.

Doesn't seem to be related to the accident, but why were they sailing there if it was too shallow for other boats to provide aid?
