Sail Rescue Thanks

To the Editor:

I need to thank a group of extraordinary people who came to my rescue on Sunday, September 8, after my sailboat capsized in the Ned’s Point area. Beginning with Scott, on his sailboat Triage and continuing with Pat, Nancy, and MaryLou, in their powerboat. Nancy actually dove into the water to make sure I could safely reach the Triage … amazing!

Also, a thank you to the harbormaster, EMTs, and the police, as well as to the two young men, Andrew and Matt, who helped to right the boat once it was towed to the wharf. Mattapoisett is indeed special!

With Gratitude To All,

Fred J. Avery
