Missing UK yachtsmen: US coastguard calls off search
A coastguard search has been called off for four Britons reported missing in the mid-Atlantic Ocean while sailing a yacht back to the UK from a regatta.
The crew of the Cheeki Rafiki 40ft performance racer-cruiser ran into difficulties on Thursday while returning from Antigua Sailing Week.
They are thought to have capsized and abandoned to a life raft, Southampton charter firm Stormforce Coaching said.
