    Here is a link to a short video of the rescue.

    There is a high probability that I know this very sloop. I helped ready an identical model sloop for a delivery crew that sailed her from Channel Islands Harbor to Pearl Harbor. The trip occurred 10 years ago and I later learned that their #1 jib, transmission and steering had failed. The steering was successfully jury rigged and they went on to complete the trip in 23 days under the #2 jib (4kt avg.). The name of the sloop was the Tracy Ann.
