Four Sailors Reported Dead

The 37-foot sailboat Aegean, was found destroyed Saturday morning, during the Newport Beach to Ensenada race. It is believed the boat must have collided with another much larger vessel.

The team aboard the boat comprised veteran sailors. The skipper of the boat, presumed dead, has not been found at this time. Three bodies have been found among the debris–Joseph Lester Stewart of Bradenton, FL, William Reed Johnson, Jr. of Torrance, and Kevin Rudolph of Manhattan Beach. A coast guard investigation is under way.

These deaths are the first in the race’s 65 year history. The deaths are the second yachting disaster this spring. On April 14, five fatalities occurred in a racing accident off the coast of San Francisco.
