Round-the-world British sailor being rescued at sea after losing mast

She said: "I have been dismasted".

British skipper Susie Goodall waves from the helm of her boat "DHL Starlight" on July 1, 2018, at the start of her solo around-the-world "Golden Globe Race" in which sailors compete without high technology aides such as Global Positioning System or computers.

06 Dec 02:51 UTC: In need of a good cuppa tea! but sadly no cooker.

Goodall, the youngest competitor and only woman in the 30,000-mile Golden Globe Race, suffered cuts and bruises in the wreck.

Hours later, she tweeted, "Nasty head bang as boat pitchpoled [somersaulted]".

Overnight, Chilean rescue authorities have tasked another ship, the 38,000 ton Hong Kong registered bulk carrier MV Tian Fu bound from China to Modran, Argentina, to go to her aid and it is due to reach her position at 05:00 UTC Friday.

"All entrants are updated on Susie and their thoughts are with her", the statement continued.

The MV Tian Fu is now crossing the Southern Ocean and will take two days to reach her.

Clinging on in my bunk ... She will also ensure that the yacht's liferaft is ready to deploy.

Goodall was in fourth place at the time, fighting for a podium finish but riding out a ferocious storm with 60-knot winds and massive seas.

Sir Robin Knox-Johnston was the sole finisher and his rivals either retired or sank.

His story was turned into a film, The Mercy, staring Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz.

Eighteen people entered from 13 countries, including the United States, Estonia and India.

Susie Goodall was briefly knocked unconscious when mountainous seas upended her yacht "DHL Starlight" early Thursday, tearing off its mast and trashing much of her equipment.

'So when I first heard there was going to be a re-run of the Golden Globe Race, my mind was made up and I was going to be on that start line'.

She returned the boat to Rustler Yachts in Falmouth where it was refitted, and then renamed DHL Starlight.
