PORTLAND, Maine — Two Canadian sailors are back in port after their boat was towed to shore by the U.S. Coast Guard.

The Coast Guard said the two people on board the 35-foot sailboat Excaliber, based in Stanley, Ontario, called for help Wednesday after their boat became disabled about 40 miles east of Southwest Harbor.

A 47-foot Coast Guard motor lifeboat was sent from Southwest Harbor to help the boat to shore.

The Coast Guard says both vessels reached Southwest Harbor at about 11 p.m. Wednesday.
