out while Sadiye Öztürk, his wife, watched with binoculars
from their house's balcony. After six hours Remzi had
still not returned so when Sadiye saw her husband
waving his arms she panicked, thinking he was in trouble.
Sadiye notified the Coast Guard command and a team
was dispatched in a dingy. The team reached Remzi but

for help.' A sailor for 60 years, Remzi said that he
floats and sleeps on the water surface for a rest.
