Coast Guard Rescues Sea Scouts

Thursday, July 02, 2009

More than two dozen Sea Scouts were rescued by the Coast Guard this week after their boat began taking on water in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta near Concord, authorities said. According to Petty Officer Levi Read, the crew of the 85-ft. SSS Farallon reported that there were eight inches of water in the bilge shortly before noon and sent out a distress call. The Coast Guard sent out a helicopter and boats and rescued 33 people, 27 of whom were Sea Scouts. They were put on a ferry and taken to Vallejo. The flooding on the Farallon was controlled, and the boat maneuvered under its own power to Alameda for repairs, Read said.
