Abandon ship MIRACLE 150nm from sailing circumnavigation, SV Kelaerin, lost & found

A USCG helicopter rescued Joy and Jim Carey 150 miles from crossing their outbound track on a 17-year sailing circumnavigation on June 18, 2018. They abandoned their 46-foot sailing vessel Kelaerin 180 miles west of Grays Harbor, Washington, after their boat was flooded with water and lost its electronics in a gale. They set off their EPIRB because they had no life raft, dinghy, or communications. They did not want their children to not know what happened to them a day from completing their 17-year, around the world trip in Bellingham, Washington.

This story had a happy ending when the USCG towed the yacht Kelaerin into Ft. Bragg, California a month later. Hear their amazing story in an exclusive interview with Jim and Joy Carey by Slow Boat Sailing.
