rowland23f-5-webDestiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland proved to be a survivor on the high seas.

The newly minted "X-Factor" judge and a half dozen companions were lost at sea for 12 hours Friday after the captain of their charter boat ride from Provincetown, Mass., became disoriented in choppy weather, The Cape Cod Times first reported.


“It was pretty rocky out there, from what they told me,” Noah Santos, the captain of the towboat dispatched to bring the lost craft back to shore, told the News.

“They were just a little shaken up. They were okay, though, and just very happy to see [my boat.].”

Rowland’s party had set sale Friday morning on a private whale watching expedition when the ship got lost in the fog and 5-foot waves roughly 30 miles off shore, Santos said.
After the Harbor Master realized the boat was late in returning, the Coast Guard was notified and triangulated the position of the missing vessel.

Santos, captain of TowBoat U.S., was then dispatched to tow the charter boat back.

Though Rowland and her fellow passengers were too tired to talk much after arriving back on dry land at 11 p.m., the “Sail On” singer did get a chance to thank her rescuer the following evening.



“I ran into her the next day while I was out at dinner with my wife and she bought us dinner,” says Santos. “She told me I was her hero.
