The Coast Guard came to the aid of four people whose sailboat became disabled in waters off southern New Jersey.

Boaters aboard the 30-foot sailboat contacted the Coast Guard early Tuesday and reported they were taking on water about five miles northeast of Atlantic City.

A 25-foot response boat crew from Coast Guard Station Atlantic City and an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City responded to the scene around 4 a.m.

Responders determined that the sailboat had apparently run aground and had no rudder or engine power. It wasn’t taking on water, but had about eight inches of water in the bilge due to the waves breaking along the hull.

The four people in the sailboat were not injured.
