Have your say

SAILORS on a racing yacht were thrown into the water when it suddenly capsized.

The 21 people on board Rambler 100, which was based in Gosport over the summer, had to be rescued off the coast of Cork yesterday.

Most of the crew managed to keep hold of the boat but five crew members were swept away and later rescued.

They were hoping for victory in the Fastnet Race.
