Coast Guard air crew rescues two from disabled sailboat 120 miles offshore

BOURNE, Mass. - A man rescued from the 45-foot disabled sailboat, Eva, 120 miles offshore of Nantucket, Mass., talks to his rescuers at Air Station Cape Cod, Tues., May 10, 2011. The Jayhawk helicopter crew and a Falcon jet crew, both based at the air station, were dispatched to assist the two-person crew after they contacted the Coast Guard Command Center in Boston via satellite telephone stating that their sailboat had lost its mast, was taking on water and vessel's dewatering pumps were not operating.
