Canadian investigators to study Gainey tragedy

Canada’s transport safety agency will conduct its own inquiry into how Laura Gainey was swept off a tall ship in a North Atlantic gale almost a year ago, saying it wants to look into safety issues missed by the original Cook Islands probe.

The daughter of Canadiens general manager Bob Gainey was hit by a large wave and thrown off the Picton Castle on the night of Dec. 8, 2006 as the three-masted barque sailed about 900 km east of Cape Cod.
