ENSENADA — The widow of a yachtsman killed with two others during a 124-mile race between California and Mexico said Monday that her husband was a veteran sailor and the destruction of their boat is a mystery.
Wreckage of the yacht Aegean was found Saturday near the Mexican border, and there is speculation that a freighter or other large boat hit it in the middle of the night. No distress signals were sent.
“I didn’t like him doing the races,” she added. “I never liked it. I mean, they were out in the middle of the ocean. I always used to worry.”
However, Mr. Rudolph had no qualms about the event and trusted his friend, she added. “He was a very experienced captain. Nobody understands how this could happen,” she said.
The Rudolphs would have celebrated their 27th anniversary on May 26, and he leaves two grown children, his widow said. Mr. Rudolph and other crewmembers worked for the Raytheon company in El Segundo, she said.
