LON­DON — A Bri­tish woman sail­ing solo in a roundthe-world race is be­ing res­cued af­ter los­ing her mast and be­ing knocked un­con­scious in a vi­cious storm.

Golden Globe Race of­fi­cials said Thurs­day on the race web- site 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 to­day.

The 29-year-old Goodall was the youngest en­trant and the sole fe­male in the de­mand­ing race.
