Over the weekend, the US Coast Guard performed two rescue operations to save the lives of a total of five rowers participating in The Great Pacific Race to Hawaii from the Central California coastline.
The first rescue came early Saturday, when a group of four rowers issued a distress call after their 24-foot English rowboat began taking on water, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. The team was participating in the 2,400-mile race, which started in Monterey on June 7 and ends 30 to 90 days later in Honolulu. Rescuers tried reaching the rowers, but high winds and rough seas made the mission impossible. A Coast Guard helicopter from San Francisco and C-130 plane from Sacramento found the rowers 75 miles west of San Luis Obispo. The rowers were taken to a local hospital, where they received medical aid and appeared to be in "good condition," the Coast Guard said.
The second rescue took place on Sunday, when Coast Guard crews assisted a solo rower some 52 miles west of Morro Bay. He reported capsizing several times in rough seas in the middle of the night. More at AP.
