Five British sailors were rescued when their yacht was damaged 325 nautical miles west of the Cape Verde Islands in the North Atlantic Ocean.

The crew members were taking part in the ARC Rally from Gran Canaria to St Lucia when they got into trouble in the form of rigging damage and a line wrapped around its propeller in Force 5 winds.
