A rescue operation is under way after approximately 80 sailing dinghies were hit by stormy weather in Strangford Lough, Northern Ireland, according to the Maritime and Coastguard agency.
Up to 100 people may be in the water of the large sea loch in County Down. The yachts were taking part in the GP14 World Championship Races from the East Down Yacht Club outside Killyleagh.

How Oman Sail Set A New Record
Sixteen minutes does little justice to the incredible performance by Sidney Gavignet's crew aboard Musandam-Oman Sail in setting a new Round Britain and Ireland record.
