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.
