UPDATE - The deceased man has been identified as the boat's skipper, Rob Royer.

 

            One fisherman is dead and three are safe after their fishing boat sank in the Gulf of Alaska yesterday (Tuesday) evening. The 75-foot Northern Belle went down about 50 miles south of Montague Island, or 235 miles northeast of Kodiak. The Seattle-based Northern Belle was bound for a cannery in Dillingham with supplies for the upcoming fishing seasons. 

            The deceased man has not been identified, pending notification of the next-of-kin. He had reportedly suffered head injuries while abandoning ship, and was dead when Coast Guard rescuers arrived about two hours later. A doctor at Cordova Community Medical Center said it was unclear if the man died from the injuries or from hypothermia. The three crewmembers that survived, two men and one woman, suffered from hypothermia, but were reported in stable condition late last night. All were wearing survival suits.

            A mayday call was received by Communications Station Kodiak about 5:30 yesterday evening.

            The unidentified man told the ComSta radio operator that there were four on board and they were abandoning ship.

            An HC-130 Hercules and an MH-60 Jayhawk were launched from Air Station Kodiak, according to Coast Guard spokesman David Mosley. The cutter Long Island, which was about 40 miles northwest of the spot where the Northern Belle went down, was also diverted to the scene. The Hercules found the crew in the water almost two hours later, clinging to debris, and dropped a life raft to them. The helicopter arrived around 8 p.m. and had all four crew members hoisted aboard within 40 minutes. They delivered them to Cordova just past nine.

            The cause of the sudden sinking is unknown and will be investigated. Weather conditions were reasonably calm for the Gulf of Alaska, with winds of 10 miles per hour and seas of three- to five-feet.

            The challenges at the Joe Floyd Track and Field over the weekend weren't limited to the competition. The weather - specifically rain, wind and cold - played a large role during the meet between the Kodiak High School Bears and visiting opponents from South Anchorage and Port Lions high schools.

            Coach Marcus Dunbar described the event as "survival of the fittest."

            On Friday, a co-ed meet was held, where the boys and girls scores were combined. Kodiak downed a combined South-Port Lions team by a score of 101-77.

            Selma Ernest won the girls' 100 and 400 meter races, while Samantha Oliver took the shot-put and helped win the Shuttle-Hurdle Relay. Camile Hobson was also on that squad, and won the 300 hurdles. Chloe Ivanoff won the 32-hundred meter race in 11-minutes 38.7 seconds, matching her personal best from last year.

            On the boys' side Friday, Karsten Schick was part of the shuttle-hurdle relay and also won the 400-meter and high jump, and was on the winning 4-by-400 relay team.

            With even worst rain on Saturday, the scoring was split between boys and girls. The Kodiak boys beat the South-Port Lions squad 64-18, but the girls fell 46-36. Dunbar points out, however, that if it were a tri-meet, the Lady Bears would have won 46 to 38 for South and 20 for Port Lions.
