Coast Guard, Virgin Islands Search and Rescue save 3 boaters from sinking sailing vessel near the British Virgin Islands
The sailing vessel Quartz partially submerged in waters southeast of Anegada, British Virgin Islands, after Coast Guard and Virgin Islands Search and Rescue (VISAR) units responded to a Mayday call in which a VISAR marine unit rescued three adult boaters during the early morning hours of March 7, 2024. The boaters were forced to abandon the sailing vessel onto a dinghy, after the catamaran hit the rocks and started taking on water. (Photo courtesy of Virgin Islands Search and Rescue)
