By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Belize Coast Guard rescued two US citizens who experienced problems out at sea on Wednesday.

The Americans were travelling in their sailboat Sencilla from Livingston, Guatemala, to Florida, United States, when they reportedly experienced mechanical problems plus damage to their sail.

The Belize Coast Guard was alerted and immediately dispatched their Search and Rescue Team in search of the sailors in distress finding them about 14 miles southeast of Ranguana Caye at about 10:40 pm on Wednesday.

“The two US nationals that were onboard were rescued and the vessel was towed to safe harbor,” said the Belize Coast Guard on social media.

“SENCILLA is being repaired before she continue her journey to Florida. The Coast Guard Rescue Team, well…. they are standing by for their next mission,” said the Belize Coast Guard.

The sailors were reportedly doing well.
