The families of four British yachtsmen who have been missing in the Atlantic for the past three days have appealed to the US Coast Guard to continue their search.
Andrew Bridge, 21, James Male, 23, Steve Warren, 52 and Paul Coslin, 56, were sailing back to Southampton from a regatta in Antigua when they ran into difficulty on Thursday and have not been heard from since.
Yesterday the US Coast Guard announced they were calling off the search.
Graham Male, the father of 23-year-old James, praised the work of the coastguard in an interview with The Times, but said:
We just want them to continue searching.
With no sign of a life raft or of debris, and with nearly 20,000 square miles having been searched, the hunt continues for another day.
Veteran yachtsman Tony Bullimore tells ITV News that there is a "strong possibility" the yachtsmen are still alive in the life raft.
