A man's body washed ashore on Huckleberry Island in the Long Island Sound on Saturday and his relatives identified it as Brooklyn resident Eoin Curran, 30. Curran had been taking a sailing class on the sound on Saturday, July 25 when a squall hit and he and the instructor were knocked into the water; he was not wearing a life jacket. A harbor master told Patch, "The rain was coming down so hard you could barely see a person standing next to you... A squall like that will lay the boat over on its side, to the point where you're taking water in the cockpit." Curran, originally from Ireland, was a programmer for Google.
