Albertan rescued after dismasting / engine failure

Three Canadians whose sailboat was caught in a violent storm in the Pacific Ocean have arrived safely in Honolulu after a night-time rescue by a American container ship.

The three, including a nine-year-old boy, were attempting to cross from Puerto Vallerto, Mexico, to Hawaii but were adrift with no power and their sails destroyed.
