Coast Guard hoists 5 from damaged sailboat 200 miles off NC coast | Coast Guard News

PORTSMOUTH, Va. – The Coast Guard rescued five people Friday from a sailboat after the sailboat’s mast broke approximately 200 miles off the coast of North Carolina.

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard 5th District Command Center in Portsmouth received notification at approximately 1:50 p.m. that the 55-foot catamaran Rain Maker, homeported in Manhattan, New York, suffered a broken mast in approximate 40-mph winds and 13-foot seas roughly 200 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.

I wonder why they abandoned the boat? There must be more to the story.

That rainmaker?
I thought it was strange to name another Cat the same, but knew there was a storm recently off the coast.

This sounds like old news? At least several months.

Interesting, I didn’t think the USCG ever towed anymore, only would call Seatow for you?
Maybe if Seatow turns it down?
