A BRI­TISH yachtswoman stranded in the Pa­cific has been res­cued.

Susie Goodall, 29, was knocked un­con­scious and her ves­sel wrecked in 75mph winds. She was fourth in the round-the­world Golden Globe Race.

Res­cuers called on cargo ship Tian Fu to steam 480 miles to her res­cue.

Goodall, from Fal­mouth in Corn­wall, tweeted: “ON THE SHIP!!!”
