Two Rescued from Ocean

November 17, 2012  

A pair of sailors were rescued two days after their stricken yacht rolled in the South Pacific in high seas.

A Hong Kong cargo ship rescued the man who was from the United Kingdom and a woman from New Zealand. Caught by a fast developing storm, they activated an emergency beacon after the boat flipped in 30 ft seas and strong winds.

Steve Jones, the rescued sailor said, "We both felt scared, seriously scared and the other person would say hey you know it's going to be OK we're going to get through this. We're going to be OK"

When asked if they would sail again, Jones said, " Farmer sounds very attractive at the moment."
