HM Coastguard was involved in the rescue of a sailor from the Atlantic Ocean over the weekend, after his yacht lost its mast in stormy conditions.
The Coastguard’s Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) received two distress beacon alerts from the yacht 700-miles west of Ireland Friday evening (14 October).
The vessel had extensive damage and was drifting in very poor weather conditions.
