A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C., hoisted four people from the Ahimsa around 1:30 a.m. Friday and took them to the air station where they declined further medical assistance.

The boat, taking part in the Salty Dawg Rally, sent out a distress signal via a satellite tracking device, stating that they were taking on water approximately 230 miles east of Virginia Beach and were in need of assistance.
