Coming to the Aid of another Sailboat

After leaving Little Fry Pan Bay on Friday, we were motoring north in Fitz Hugh Sound when we heard a distress call to the Canadian Coast Guard. A sailboat was languishing with no wind, and their motor wasn't operational. They were slowly drifting with the current towards shore. We
were three hours away from them, but called in to the Coast Guard, and said we would try to help. After three hours, we arrived on scene. The wind had picked up, but they were struggling getting up their mainsail. We pulled along side, tied up to them, and moved them into the wind.
With some help, they were able to raise their mainsail. When they were in the wind, we released them. In the mean time, they had asked the Coast Guard to help contact towing services in Bella Bella to come and tow them to Shearwater where they would have a mechanic's help with their
engine. We stood off with them for four hours sailing until the tow tug arrived on scene at 1800. We said our good byes, and left for a nearby anchorage at Kisameet Bay on King Island for the night. Saw two Pacific Loons in the anchorage. All is well!
