He was a member of Duck Island Yacht Club. The following is from the Commodore of DIYC:
It is with much sadness, that I need to inform you of a most unfortunate tragedy.
Our good friend, Mark Marsella passed away this weekend, while racing at Block Island.
We are planning a moment of silence, during racing on Wednesday, followed by a short eulogy and 8 bells.
Mark's daughter Alexandra will be out on XLR8, and his Mom will be watching the racing from one of the power boats.
Please keep your thoughts and prayers with his family, at this difficult time.
With a Heavy Heart,
Commodore DIYC 2013
