recovered

Clipper RTW team Derry-Londonderry-Doire show their successful recovery of Andrew Taylor after a wave knocked him off the boat during a 35-knot squall about halfway across the Pacific.  The 90-minute rescue was compounded by hail and breaking seas, but Taylor’s drysuit and PFD made it a fairly textbook – if slow – rescue.  No word on what the holdup was, or whether the Clipper crew was wearing a PLRB; official news here and thanks to Richard for the heads up.
