Crew Rescued From Sailboat Hit by Hurricane Julio


Three people have been rescued by a container ship after their sailboat was disabled by Hurricane Julio around 400 miles northeast of Oahu, Hawaii. The 42-foot yacht was travelling from Stockton, California, to Honolulu when it lost its mast and began taking on water during the storm. The Walkabout’s crew, Ben Nealy, 67, Lee Nealy, 22, and Mike Vanway, 22, were transferred to Matson container ship in a rescue organised by the US Coast Guard.
