Friday, March 04, 2016 @ 10:54:18 EST
SEATTLE — A Coast Guard boatcrew from Station Port Angeles rescued two people from a 49-foot sailboat beset by weather about one mile east of the New Dungeness Lighthouse, Tuesday afternoon.
A man on shore who saw the sailboat and what appeared to be a person in the water notified watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Puget Sound, in Seattle, at around 10 a.m. An aircrew, aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Air Station Port Angeles, and the boatcrew, aboard a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium, immediately launched and arrived at the sailboat’s location at around 11 a.m. The boatcrew placed the vessel in astern tow, but sea conditions caused the towline to separate from the vessel.
