Dennis Clements talks about his experience Sunday, Jan. 3, 2010, after being rescued from the Atlantic Ocean 250 nautical miles east of Hatteras, N.C.

The Missouri native was travelling from the Hampton Roads area to the U.S. Virgin Islands when he ran into bad weather damaging his sailboat Tuesday. He was attempting to get back to the mainland, but Saturday's weather was so rough that it set off his Electronic Position Indicating Radio Beacon, or EPIRB. That signal notified the Coast Guard which started an incredible effort to rescue the distressed sailor.
