A pilot flying into Cape May Airport around 6 p.m. Sunday saw the man and reported the distress to airport personnel, who notified the Coast Guard.

A 45-foot Response Boat from Coast Guard Station Cape May soon arrived on scene and found the man, who was wearing a life jacket, standing on his overturned vessel. After helping him right his vessel, they escorted him back to shore.

The boater was not injured in the incident.
