Lost Canadian sailboat found off Ocean Shores

The Associated Press

OCEAN SHORES — The Coast Guard says a sailboat that was reported missing July 11 off of British Columbia was found capsized Thursday about five miles northwest of Ocean Shores.

There was no sign of 69-year-old Paul Clark, who sailed alone out of Prince Rupert, B.C., earlier in July on his way to Port Hardy, B.C.

A helicopter and Coast Guard vessels from Washington and Oregon searched for the Canadian for three hours without success.

The Coast Guard says a fishing vessel found his 16-foot sailboat. It’s being transferred to Canadian officials.

Clark was last seen in the vicinity of Aristazabal Island, about halfway through his planned trip. He was reported missing after he failed to check in with his family.
