Quick thinking saved a sailboat from sinking Monday night. The two sailors aboard the boat abandoned it after losing steerage in high winds and waves. Called to the pier, Richard Sturgill jumped aboard to guide efforts to pull it out from underneath the pier in a rising tide. After bystanders pulled the boat to the west end of the pier, Captain Sam Clemens arrived with the Plover to take the boat to safety. Photos by Richard Sturgill
