Passing Wind II . . .

The following incident isn't funny, but the headline is priceless. It's from today's 'Lectronic Latitude . . .

"Coasties Rescue Two from Passing Wind II

"October 26, 2007 Shelter Cove

"The two crew aboard the 38-ft sailboat Passing Wind II were rescued by the Coast Guard yesterday after they were dismasted about 40 miles off Pt. San Pedro. The Coasties received an EPIRB alert around 10:15 a.m. and immediately dispatched a helo and plane. . . "

I wonder if the Coasties dared to get downwind of them?
