Coast Guard Tows Disabled Vessel to Lighthouse Marina
A 26-foot sailing vessel was disabled and adrift
The Coast Guard towed a disabled sailing vessel earlier today to Lighthouse Marina near Barnegat Inlet.
The 26-foot sailing vessel, South Cross, was disabled and adrift near the Barnegat Inlet Jetty with two people aboard and no anchor line, officials with the Coast Guard said in a press release.
A Coast Guard Station Barnegat Light crew aboard a 47-foot motor lifeboat arrived on scene and took the vessel in tow, according to the release.
"It was a great feeling to see our constant training come into effect with a successful outcome," said Petty Officer 3rd Class Stanley Zubrzycki, a Station Barnegat Light crewmember. "We always go out expecting the worst, and we do our best to turn it into a good situation."
