It was a quiet afternoon on the water when the emergency call came in. The operator of a 44-foot cabin cruiser was violently ill and unable to navigate his craft, which was heading toward the rocks inside Channel Islands Harbor. Ventura County Harbor Patrol Officers Dusty Frechette and Troy Kuhlman raced to the scene in a powerboat, sirens blaring. Frechette boarded the vessel, brought it under control and treated the man while Kuhlman diverted other boat traffic.

A multi-agency team conducted a mock ocean rescue Thursday involving a capsized board with 12 "victims" in the water. Rescue personnel performed a search-and-rescue mission on the water, with some of the supposed victims unaccounted for and others unable to communicate with rescuers. The exercise was intended to provide ocean-based crisis training and teach interagency coordination.

A man was airlifted to an area hospital Sunday after he broke his leg while jet skiing. Harbor patrol authorities said they were called out just after 1 p.m. to rescue Dean Garcia, who had been in the ocean with two other friends about 200 yards north of the mouth of the Ventura River. Garcia told authorities he was riding the craft when it hit a wave, throwing him into the air.

One man died and another was missing at sea Sunday after high winds and big waves flipped and broke their 40-foot outrigger canoe near Channel Islands Harbor, throwing all six paddlers into the frigid ocean for several hours. John Devlin, 50, of Oxnard was already dead when the owner of a commercial fishing vessel spotted four men clinging to a red, white and blue pontoon about 3 1/2 miles offshore of Ventura Harbor about 12:30 p.m.
