The aunt of one of the missing yachtsmen has said families are hopeful the search for the crew would be resumed. Andrew Bridge's aunt, Georgina Bridge, said the family remains hopeful that the US Coast Guard would give the search another try.
She told Sky News: "Obviously the family are really concerned that the search has been suspended and we are really hoping that it will be resumed.
"We are holding out great hope that Andrew and the guys on board Cheeki Rafiki will be found.
"We are hopeful that they were able to launch a life raft and that they are still on board that, so we would just really like the search to be resumed."
Speaking to The Times, Mr Male's father Graham Male 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.
