An Indian yachtsman is stable and doing well after he was injured during an around-the-world sailing race and rescued after two days adrift in the Indian Ocean, a spokesman for the Indian Navy said Wednesday.
Two solo yachtsman stranded in the remote Indian Ocean during a round-the-world race were in a "good and stable condition" after being rescued in an multinational mission, Australian authorities said Tuesday.
A French ship heading to the rescue of an Indian sailor injured in a gruelling round-the-world race is expected to reach his storm-damaged yacht off Australia's west coast on Monday, Australian officials said.
Australia Sunday joined an international mission to rescue an injured Indian sailor stranded in the Indian Ocean while competing in the round-the-world Golden Globe Race.
The organisers of the round-the-world Golden Globe Race said Saturday they were scrambling to rescue missing Indian sailor Abhilash Tomy, but admitted he was "as far from help as you can possibly be".
