DUBLIN (Reuters) - Northern Ireland's coastguard launched a rescue operation on Monday after around 80 small sailing boats capsized during a storm.
A spokeswoman for the coastguard said 97 people ended up in Strangford Lough in strong winds during a world championship race for GP14 class dinghies and 67 had been rescued. At least 10 people were injured, she said.
The Ulster Hospital said it had declared a major incident.
