Coast Guard Station Rockland reported the following activity.

July 16

At 5:45 a.m. Sector Northern New England notified Station Rockland that it had received a call about a 58-year-old female who was exhibiting shock symptoms and needed medical attention. The woman was aboard the sailing vessel Victory Chimes, which was anchored in Rockland Harbor. A motor life boat was launched at 6:08 a.m. with a four-person crew to do a medical evacuation of the woman off the schooner.

The motor life boat arrived on scene at 6:20 a.m., and the coxswain, BM1 James Hess, evaluated the weather conditions, winds and seas, which were calm. He determined that it was safe to bring the woman on board the motor life boat. At 6:38 a.m. the Coast Guard crew successfully transferred the woman to the 47-foot motor life boat and returned to the Coast Guard docks where the patient was assisted by Rockland Emergency Medical Services.

At 3:10 p.m. Station Rockland received a cell phone call about an overturned tandem kayak off Crescent Beach in Owls Head with two people in the water. There was a second kayak on scene helping the people in the water, and they were able to get back into the kayak and begin paddling toward shore, so the ready boat crew stood down from the case.

At 3:35 p.m. the same reporting source called Station Rockland again and said that the kayak rolled over a second time and both people were back in the water. At 3:47 p.m. a response boat was launched with a three-person crew to assist. At 4:03 p.m. the kayaker who was assisting the people in the water called Station Rockland on a VHF radio and said that both of the kayakers that were in the water were safely ashore. The coxswain of the response boat, BM1 James Hess, confirmed that both of the kayakers were safely ashore and that they, and the assisting kayaker, did not have any signs of hypothermia. The response boat returned to the station.
