Coast Guard rescues 5 off the coast of Newport, Oregon
from KATU - TV
The Coast Guard rescued five people from a disabled sailboat about 20 miles west of Yaquina Bay, Oregon, recently. The crew called for help in the early morning, saying they were struggling to make their way to the harbor and feared they couldn’t cross the bar. At the time, conditions were 10- to 20-foot seas with winds up to 45 mph. A little less than two hours later, a Coast Guard boat reached the stranded crew and towed their boat to about two miles from the bay, where two other Coast Guard crews were located.
