The Latest: Ship rescues British sailor in Southern Ocean
LONDON (AP) — The Latest on the rescue of a British sailor in the Southern Ocean. (all times local):
A cargo ship has rescued a British woman who was dismasted by a violent storm in the Southern Ocean while sailing solo in a round-the-world race.
British sailor Susie Goodall tweeted “ON THE SHIP!!!” soon after the Hong Kong-registered MV Tian Fu arrived at her location west of Cape Horn. The cargo vessel had been traveling from China to Argentina when it diverted to reach her hobbled sailboat.
Race officials have been in regular radio contact with Goodall, who lost her mast 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) west of Cape Horn near the southern tip of South America.
