(Charlestown, RI) -- Rhode Island governor candidate Joe Trillo is thanking the Coast Guard and the Charlestown Harbormaster for assisting when his yacht struck a rock on Sunday. The Coast Guard says a 911 call was received from the 65-foot "Lady M" at around 11 a.m. stating they were taking on water near the Charlestown Breachway after the accident. The harbormaster reportedly removed all four passengers and crew, including Trillo, safely. The independent candidate tweeted a photo of the yacht earlier this month on the water with a large campaign sign draped over it.
