Sounds more like an ultralight that is being misreported as a glider.

"The glider was about 1,000 feet above the bay when the engine stopped."

A quick search brought up another article that is a bit clearer.

https://patch.com/new-hampshire/conc...escued-boaters

"NH Marine Patrol Officers learned that the ultralight was approximately 1,000 feet above the bay when the engine stopped."

Well, it was a glider once the engine stopped.

If you have to pronounce the name of the lake on the 911 call, you're sunk.

Nope! It was still an airplane, even though it was gliding, just as motorgliders
don't become airplanes when the engine is running; otherwise; you'd need a glider
license AND an SEL license to fly it :^)

That's what the FAA say, but that doesn't mean it makes sense.

Transport Canada have a more sensible attitude.
A motor is considered an alternative launch method.
You need a GPL and endorsement from an instructor
with SLS experience.

It's the same in the US.

In the US, a checkride is required in a 2-seat motorglider, even if the applicant has Glider and SEL ratings. That, in my opinion, makes no sense.
