Coast Guard rescues man off the coast of Delray

The U.S. Coast Guard says a 65-year-old man from Canada was rescued after his sailing vessel began taking on water eight miles east of Delray Beach. 

According to a news release, Jean Dextraze called watchstanders from a  satellite phone and indicated his position and climbed into his dingy after the vessel began listing. 

Dextraze was taken to Boynton Inlet where EMS transported him to Bethesda Hospital East.

The 38-foot sailing vessel, the Saint Paix, sunk and is being monitored as a hazard for pollution. 

The cause of the incident is under investigation.
