The Coast Guard rescued a man and his dog from a disabled sailboat near Hampton.

They say the boat became disabled in the northwest branch of the Back River about half a mile northwest of the Bell Isle Marina in Hampton.

Towboat U.S. notified Coast Guard Sector Hampton Roads watchstanders of the disabled sailboat at 10:15 p.m. Monday.

Crews were unable to approach the sailboat due to weather conditions.

Once crews arrived, the Coast Guard crew transferred the man and his dog from the 41-foot sailboat to their boat at approximately 2:00 a.m. Tuesday and took them to the Langley Air Force Base marina.

They say there are no reports of injuries.
