    Ian Herbert Jones Successfully Rescued


    He was recovered at 1845 UTC today. He is battered and bruised with scrapes and scratches, some back pain, but he is very happy to be with the crew. The master of the rescue ship moved straight into a recovery operation in the 25k wind and 4 mtr sea as soon as they were on scene.

    Big week-end ahead.

    In the un-aptly named Pacific, Ian isn’t slowed down too much by his torn mainsail, and Jeremy has resumed his course towards Cape Horn after the front yesterday. 600 miles from the rock, he is a little further east than he would like but keeps a good distance to the Chilean coastline: 250 miles, or 5 times more than Abhilash at the same latitude! Unlike his Atlantic mates, he can count on accurate weather information.

    A Bitter Blast Before Cape Horn

    Rough Start For Golden Globe Sailors

    As expected, the GGR fleet has split into two as the wind kicked in: a group of five led by Damien Guillou and Tapio Lehtinen are heading west in 25-30 knots of south westerly and 3-4 metre waves, while the rest led by Pat Lawless, Simon Curwen and Kirsten Neuch?fer are heading towards the Galician coastline in confused seas and 15-20 knots of wind.
