  • Joshua Gogolski (left) and Jerome Pascual (right) went sailing from Oahu to Maui on Friday and failed to return.

The U.S. Coast Guard said it located three men who had been reported missing on a sailing trip after they called in to report they were delayed but not in distress 30 miles from Lahaina.

Father and son, Frank and Joshua Gogolski and friend Jerome Pascual took the sailing vessel Honeycutter and left on Friday from the Rainbow Marina in Pearl Harbor, according to the Coast Guard.

They planned to sail to Lahaina, where Pascual would depart and return to Oahu and the Gogolskis would continue to the West Coast.

Pasual failed to arrive to the airport Saturday night, when his wife reported him missing.

The Coast Guard said it received a call from the Honeycutter crew at 11:30 a.m. Sunday reporting a damaged sail in heavy seas, but that the crew was not in distress.

“The crew was reportedly unable to make contact with family until they travelled back into cell phone range and did not have their VHF-FM radio turned to Channel 16, thus missing the Coast Guards call outs,” said Lt. Kevin Edes, the command duty officer at Coast Guard Sector Command Center Honolulu in a press release.
