A rescue boat reached the battered yacht about 200 miles (320 kilometers) off the coast and transported the sailors to a Coast Guard cutter, Petty Officer Caleb Critchfield said.

The two were being treated aboard the cutter and will receive additional medical aid when the vessel reaches San Francisco Bay, said DeeDee Taft, a spokeswoman for the Clipper 11-12 Round the World Yacht Race.

The injured were Jane Hitchens, 50, a doctor from Kent, England, who may have suffered broken ribs, and Nik Brbora, 29, a software engineer from London who may have suffered a pelvic strain, Taft said.
