LOS ANGELES (AP) — Stormy seas off Southern California destroyed a sailboat during a race on a rocky island shore, leaving one sailor dead after the boat first sent a mayday call but then waved off help from the Coast Guard and other boaters.

Five other crewmembers of the Uncontrollable Urge were rescued Saturday after the 32-foot sailboat lost its steering capability and the craft began drifting toward San Clemente Island, where it then broke apart, Coast Guard Petty Officer Connie Gawrelli said.
