The crew of the Permission Impossible, a 22-foot sailboat, contacted Coast Guard Sector North Carolina Command Center watchstanders via VHF-FM channel 16 at approximately 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 29, 2013, reporting their sailboat was aground and were in need of assistance. A Jayhawk crew from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C., lowered a rescue swimmer to the sailboat, hoisted a man and a woman from the sailboat and took them to the air station where they were taken to a local hotel.
