  1. 5 of the 6 were rescued. One safety officer, Roger Stone, sacrificed his life so that two student sailors could escape from the capsized boat. Mr. Stone shoved them out of the area below deck as the boat was turning upside down and sinking. He is a hero by all accounts. May he rest in eternal peace.
