(Port Townsend) – One man is dead after a small boat capsized near the Port Hudson Marina.
57-year-old Stephen Halpin of Montana was visiting the area for a small-boat sailing event, when his boat overturned Sunday.
Halpin went into cardiac arrest soon after he was plucked from the water and later died.
Rescuers say Halpin had a do-not-resuscitate order and they stopped CPR efforts.
Halpin was on board the boat with his wife and another woman at the time it capsized. The two women were not hurt.
