Couple rescued by yacht after broach

A couple were rescued last week when their 20ft gaffer sank off Castle Point near Cowes.

 The man and woman were en route to the annual Old Gaffers

Festival
at Yarmouth when their yacht broached and filled with water

Their boat capsized but they were quickly picked up by a

passing vessel and taken ashore where they underwent a medical check-up

on Friday evening.

The couple, who are not from the UK, also lost their passports despite a search by a lifeboat crewman.
