      Coast Guard rescues sailor near Port Townsend

      PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard rescued a sailor whose boat capsized six miles north of Port Townsend, Wash.

      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.
