Two of the four injured sailors from the Geraldton Western Australia yacht have been taken on board a US coastguard ship for treatment.

The crew members were hurt when a huge wave crashed into their boat during the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race.

The four, three Britons and an Australian, suffered a range of injuries during a storm in the Pacific Ocean, 400 miles off California.
