Well...at least he made it 50 miles!
Anyone in CA know any more about this?

SANTA BARBARA, Calif - Late yesterday afternoon the Coast Guard dispatched a rescue helicopter from Coast Guard Air-Station Los Angeles and an 87-foot Coast Guard Cutter after receiving a distress call from a solo sailor on a 25 foot sailboat who was transiting from Santa Barbara to Hawaii. In the radio call for help the sailor indicated he had been awake for 36 hours and was having medical issues. Before the sailorís position could be determined radio contact was lost.
Despite losing radio contact the Coast Guard rescue helicopter was able to locate the sailor about 10 nautical miles southwest of Santa Rosa Island. After making contact with the sailor the helicopter crew instructed him to proceed to a designated location to rendezvous with the Cutter Halibut that was en route from Santa Barbara, about 69 nautical miles away.

Sleep deprivation is a medical condition? Of course another extreme medical condition that I seem to suffer from is foot in mouth syndrom.....

Aw, come on, Giu. At least a little photo-shop? Or maybe a Catalina comparison for the benefit of CD? I haven't laughed since the last one!

He's going to take his 25 footer to Hawaii? Sounds like a good plan already. I'd like to go to Hawaii too. Maybe I'll take my little bayliner built jewel down the big muddy, cross the gulf (dodging a few hurricanes on the way), through the panama canal, and I'll be on my way. From there I think I'll go see Fiji.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

I dunno, isn't there a couple that have circumnavigated the globe a few times in a 26-footer? I don't think it's the size of the boat, so much as whether it's well-found and both it and the crew are adequate to the task.

I guess he didn't have enough coffee on board to help him stay awake.

But then I did at one time delay sailing a vessel because there wasn't any coffee on board. They got me ten pounds of coffee inside of three hours and we sailed.

A 25 foot boat? to Hawaii from California? It has been done a few times. But you don't want to be in the shipping lanes as you make that voyage.
