Four men on board a yacht that set off from Bermuda were airlifted by the US Coast Guard on Sunday after getting caught in rough seas.

The men were rescued about 90 miles south of Montauk, New York, according to a report on www.yahoo.com.

The sailors aboard the 39-foot Calypso, suffered injuries “due to heavy sea conditions” during the journey from Bermuda to Connecticut.
