A retired public school teacher drowned after his yacht capsized while he was on a sailing trip with friends. Douglas Perrin, 66, died after the yacht ran into strong winds off the coast of Ireland.

His two friends, a retired couple, survived by swimming through stormy seas and climbing a cliff on a small uninhabited island where they spent the night. They are now being treated for hypothermia.
