Sailboat Captain Safe After Water Rescue Off Del Mar Coast

Posted: Updated:
High winds and rough waters nearly caused a local man to lose control of his sailboat Sunday night.

The man was sailing off the coast of Del Mar when observers noticed the boat being tossed around by the waves and wind. A witness called authorities, who dispatched lifeguards to assist the boat's captain.

The man was sailing with his cat and had hoped to get all the way to Harbor Island, but the wind and waves made the journey too difficult.

Both the man and his pet were rescued by authorities, who brought them to shore on inflatable lifeboats.
