Galley water pump stopped

So, I went sailing yesterday and spent the better part of four hours heeled over. When I returned I tried to wash my hands in the galley sink and some water came out, then stopped. The pump was still laboring, but the water didn't flow. Someone here told me that the vent for my fresh water tank is blocked, but I can't even find it. Does that sound about right? There is definitely water in there, it just won't make it's way to the pump (which is below the sink at floor level).
