BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Members of the Coast Guard are working to rescue five people Friday afternoon who were on a disabled sailboat about 30 miles southeast of Bald Head Island.
The Coast Guard was contacted Thursday night around 9:15, requesting assistance because the 63-foot sailboat was losing power.
A crew was dispatched to Oak Island to assist and arrived to the sailboat around 5:45 Friday morning.
Because of the rough sea and weather conditions, the first crew was only able to tow the sailboat at a speed of two knots. A second crew arrived around 8 a.m. to take over the tow.
No other details have been released at this time.

An open-letter to Saundra Adams is the way Rae Carruth has chosen to share his side of the story.
Police say a Sunday school teacher at St. Paul Zion church was robbed by the pastor of that church and his family while teaching her class on Sunday.
The 15-year-old took bullets to the back and both legs, but the 20 classmates he was protecting survived uninjured.
Saundra Adams’ jaw dropped as she listened to Rae Carruth’s voice echo out from a laptop in the backseat of a WBTV live truck in north Charlotte.
