Eight teenagers and two instructors from a Haifa sailing club were rescued safely by police boats after their sailing dinghies capsized in heavy seas and strong winds off the coast from Bat Galim on Wednesday evening. Coastal police managed to extrciate the youngsters and their guides some 300 meters from the shore after they received an alert that the sailing boats had turned over in the face of high waves and strong winds. Police stressed that all those aboard the sailing vessels had been rescued.
