retards r’ us
We’re sure we’re jumping to conclusions and we’re sure there are factors that we are unaware of, but christ, wtf are these people doing at sea in these conditions if they can’t even sail their goddamn boat? From the Coasties…
U.S. Coast Guard helicopter crews from Air Station Savannah, Ga., are enroute to hoist four adults from a 35-foot sailboat with disabled engines in 15-to-20-foot seas 65 miles off Charleston Friday afternoon. The Charleston-based Coast Guard Cutter Yellowfin and an Elizabeth City, N.C.,-based HC-130 Hercules plane are currently on scene with the sailboat.
The helicopter crews plan to airlift all four sailors from the vessel and take them to Charleston Executive Airport in John’s Island, S.C. The sailors contacted Coast Guard Sector Charleston Thursday evening to report the vessel’s engine was disabled and it was beset by weather. The Yellowfin launched immediately to provide assistance and arrived on scene with the sailboat Friday morning.
