    Rescued at Sea

    July 12, 2007

    Huglo rescue

    What began as a solo sailing trip across the Atlantic for a French schoolteacher on his summer holiday became a near-death experience.

    On July 5, Pierre Andre Huglo’s 28-foot yacht, sailing from Dieppe, France, to St. John, Newfoundland, capsized in heavy seas.

    He was rescued in mid Atlantic by container ship and taken to Philadelphia. His boat is a Pogo 8.5 (mini transat) called Yum.

      The yacth Yum was later towed to La Coruna in Spain by an Irish fishing vessel called the Ocean Enterprise.She arrived there on 13th of August and other than a missing mast seems to be in good condition.Possibly Monsieur Huglo can make a third attempt.
