Sixty-Six days adrift saved by Angel
Louis Jordan spent 66 days adrift on his Pearson yacht Angel after suffering a broken collar bone due to capsize and loss of the boat’s rig. He was found 200 miles east of Cape Hatteras off the north Carolina coast and airlifted to shore by the U.S. Coastguard from a German –flagged container ship, the Houston Express.
He survived by rationing the available food and water then catching both rainwater and fish, the latter apparently help by trailing his laundry behind the boat to attract the fish which he then caught in a net.
