LOS ANGELES (AP) - Five sailors who survived when their boat smashed into rocks during a race in storm-churned seas off San Diego, killing a fellow crewmember, have been released from San Diego hospitals.
Chuck Hope, commodore of the San Diego Yacht Club, tells UT San Diego Sunday (http://bit.ly/14KsMEg ) that the survivors were treated for cuts, bruises and hypothermia. The yacht club was a co-host of the Islands Race.
The Uncontrollable Urge broke apart Friday on rocks near San Clemente Island after the 32-foot sailboat lost its steering.
Thirty-six-year-old Craig Williams, an architect from Serra Mesa, was killed. Officials with the Islands Race identified the other crew members as James Gilmore, the skipper and owner of the boat; Mike Skillicorn; Doug Pajak; Ryan Georgianna; and Vince Valdes.
The overnight, 139-nautical-mile race began in Orange County on Friday.
