British yachtswoman says she’s ‘clinging on’ in her bunk and is ‘in need of a good cuppa tea’ as she waits for rescue after losing her mast near Cape Horn during round-the-world race


  • Susie Goodall stranded 2,000 miles North West of Cape Horn, deep in Southern Ocean
  • The 29-year-old had been competing in single-handed DHL Golden Globe race
  • Boat capsized in a storm and she was ‘knocked out for a while’ while below deck
  • Goodall has sent a series of tweets while she awaits rescue by a Chilean vessel

Today, race organisers said Chilean rescue authorities have tasked the 38,000 ton Hong Kong-registered bulk carrier MV Tian Fu – bound from China to Modran, Argentina – to go to her aid. It is due to reach her position at 5am on Friday.
