Swedish sailing coach drowns in capsize

Swedish Olympic sailing coach Don Nordqvist drowned last week after his boat capsized in stormy seas off the coast of Spain.

Nordqvist, 52, had been in Denia for the last month with a group of Swedish students from a sports school.

The accident happened when Nordqvist's small boat turned over after he sailed out to see whether conditions were suitable for training, according to reports.

Europa Press reported that a second person in the boat was a woman who helped Nordqvist coach the students. She survived after she was thrown a life jacket from shore.
