Coast guard rescues sailor near Port Townsend

PORTLAND, Ore. — The U.S. Coast Guard rescued a sailor whose boat capsized six miles north of Port Townsend.
Coast Guard spokesman Nathan Littlejohn says a response boat arrived on the scene Saturday afternoon to find that the sailor had managed to right the overturned boat.
The Port Angeles-based crew threw a line to the distressed sailor, helping him aboard the response boat. He was not hurt.
Littlejohn says the sailor’s 19-foot homemade sailboat was towed to Point Hudson Marina in Port Townsend.
