It was about 6:30 p.m. local time Aug. 15 when the Irish coast guard received an EPIRB signal from the U.S.-flagged racing yacht Rambler 100. She had just capsized about 16 miles from Baltimore, County Cork, between the turning mark of Fastnet Rock and the Pantaenius Buoy.
Rambler was competing in the Royal Ocean Racing Club’s biennial Fastnet Race after setting a course record earlier this summer in the Transatlantic Race from Newport, R.I., to Lizard Point in the United Kingdom.
