Two men were rescued shortly after midday yesterday following a radio Mayday call alerting port officials that their trimaran had capsized in rough seas of the Rock.

The port and emergency services responded immediately and within half an hour the men had been plucked from the sea.

Their vessel was towed into port, where it was lifted out of the sea.
