ANTARCTIC SURVEY SHIP IN RESCUE MISSION

Earlier this week a ship from the British Antarctic Survey came to the rescue of a sinking yacht off the Cape Verde Islands. The ‘Tenca Arrow’ was taking on water after sustaining damage to her rigging and propeller. The RRS ‘James Clarke Ross’ was returning to Britain when she got the alert by Moroccan Coastguards and reached the stricken vessel within six hours.

The crew of three Britons, one South African and a cat will remain on board the JCR until it docks in Portland, Dorset around May 24th. All are reported to be safe and well.
