The Coast Guard rescued a man after his 14-foot sailing skiff capsized near Vashon Island Saturday morning.
The man, reportedly wearing a wet suit and a lifejacket, was taken to Fauntleroy Ferry Terminal where he was met by medics. There were no reports of injuries.
“His preparedness may have been the difference between a successful rescue and an unsuccessful rescue,” said a Coast Guard spokesman.
A King County Sheriff Marine Unit crew towed the skiff to the Vashon Island Ferry Terminal, where the owner plans to recover the vessel.
Ferries were slightly delayed.
