Two boaters were rescued Monday after their sailing vessel became disabled 72 miles east of Cape May.

Coast Guard officials say they received notification from the two boaters that their sailboat was out of fuel, and drifting due to lack of wind.
Out of fuel means "disabled" on a sailboat? Since when?

From the photos, it does look like it's pretty much a flat calm. So - my guess is that they were motoring to get somewhere, ran out of fuel, then ran out of patience to wait for wind and called the CG.

I hope that's not the case.
