Beneteau loses rudder..boat sinks

This Benny 40.7 had it's rudder snap en route from Nap town to Newport and the 6 person crew could not stop the water. Coast Guard rescued the 6 crew but sadly the boat was lost.
Six rescued from sailboat off Shinnecock Inlet -- Annapolis -- Newsday.com
Not a good weekend for LI waters as a J80 racing lost its' keel...again all hands safe.
