The Hitavada - - 2ND FRONTPAGE -

A BRI­TISH woman sail­ing solo in a round-the-world race is be­ing res­cued af­ter los­ing her mast and be­ing knocked un­con­scious in a vi­cious storm.

Golden Globe Race of­fi­cials said on Thurs­day on the race web­site that they have been in reg­u­lar ra­dio con­tact with Susie Goodall since she re­gained con­scious­ness. Goodall is said to be ‘safe and se­cure’ af­ter los­ing her mast in the South­ern Ocean, 2,000 miles west of Cape Horn near the south­ern tip of South Amer­ica.

Chilean au­thor­i­ties have di­rected the MV Tian Fu to res­cue her. The car­rier is ex­pected to reach Goodall on Fri­day.
