Update: Rescue off Fauntleroy dock, ferries delayed

11:33 AM: A rescue offshore in Fauntleroy has delayed ferries to and from the terminal. Heidi, onboard one of the ferries, says “a sailboat went turtle” and tweeted photos including:

Scanner traffic indicates a person has been rescued from the water.

11:43 AM: The Seattle Fire crews have just left the dock. The Klahowya, which was assisting, finally has made it to Fauntleroy. No information so far on the rescued person’s condition.

Still no official word on how the victim is doing and exactly what happened.
