PORT TOWNSEND — A disabled sailboat with a broken rudder was towed safely to a Port Townsend marina Saturday evening, the U.S. Coast Guard reported.

The Coast Guard received a call at about 4 p.m. Saturday for the 32-foot Clipper, which was stranded about three nautical miles northwest of Point Wilson, Lt. Mark Hiigel said.

A rescue vessel towed the Clipper and moored the boat in a Port Townsend marina shortly before 7 p.m., Hiigel said.
