Two Swedish boaters rescued at sea Saturday arrive Monday in Wilmington, Del., after being rescued from their sailboat Saturday approximately 100 miles southwest of Bermuda.

A 35-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman were aboard the 33-foot Swedish-flagged sailboat Bull when it started taking on water.

“This case is a perfect example of why equipping your vessel with a properly registered EPIRB can pay off so well,” said Capt. Kathleen Moore, the commander of Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay. “The operators of the sailing vessel Bull owe their lives to this $400 piece of equipment and to the crew of the Crown Sapphire.”
