Sailor rescued by 40,000-tonne ship

Listen to Susie Goodall’s emergency call

English yachtswoman Susie Goodall has been rescued by a 40,000-tonne cargo ship in stormy conditions – two days after her boat violently capsized 2,000 miles west of Cape Horn during the Golden Globe Race.

The 119-metre cargo ship had to use its crane to lift Goodall onboard.

The 29-year-old lost her mast after her boat pitchpoled during the non-stop solo round-the-world race.
