    BOSTON, Mass. — The Coast Guard rescued two men today at about 2:20 p.m. 100 miles southeast of Nantucket, Mass., after their boat became disabled.

    A Coast Guard helicopter crew is bringing both men back to Air Station Cape Cod, located in Bourne, Mass.

    The crew of the 88-foot sailing vessel Raw Faith reported their situation to the Coast Guard Monday. The Coast Guard launched several aircraft and diverted two Coast Guard cutters to assist the men.

    Additional survival gear was passed to the crew of the Raw Faith today. When the crew made the decision to evacuate the vessel, both men entered the water in survival suits and were hoisted on board an MH-60 helicopter.

    The Coast Guard Cutter Reliance, homeported in Kittery, Maine, will remain on scene with the Raw Faith.
