Clipper round-the-world race crew 'took force of wave'

The US Coastguard is trying to help four crew members who were hurt when a large wave crashed onto their yacht during a round-the-world race.

The four, including three Britons, were injured when a storm hit in the Pacific Ocean, 400 miles off California.

Jonathan Bailey, director of the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race, said the crew took the full force of the wave.
