A SAILOR suffered a serious head injury after he was hit by rigging on a yacht.

The coastguard was called out to the yacht in the Solent after one of the crew was badly hurt.

Doctors at Queen Alexandra Hospital were also called to help give the crew advice over the phone.

The yacht was escorted to Camber Dock in Portsmouth at about 4pm on Saturday and an ambulance took the man to hospital. The injury was not thought to be life-threatening.
