YACHTS sunk in Sunday's storms have been recovered.

Several boats moored at Cowes were submerged in heavy seas after the Isle of Wight was battered by gale force winds and heavy seas.

An operation yesterday (Wednesday) recovered the boats, with divers using air bags to re-float the Daring class boats.
