Sailboat capsizes, two escape unharmed

Two people swam safely to shore after their sailboat capsized just south of Golden Gardens late Wednesday afternoon, according to the Coast Guard and reported by our partners, the Seattle Times. The boat was later towed to the marina. Back in September, another sailboat ran aground north of Golden Gardens, and the passenger escaped safely, as well. (Thanks all for your tips!)

  1. They didn't come ashore (at least not right away). They were in one of those stripped down two-person racing boats that doesn't even have a transom. They were wearing wetsuits. By the time the fire department got there, the boat was upright and the two sailors were arranging a tow out by a power boat. It didn't appear to me that they were ever in distress.

  2. “In naval architecture, a transom is the surface that forms the stern of a vessel. “

    And their boat didn't have one? Doesn't that require a lot of bailing?

    Just kidding. ;-)
