British round-the-world sailor Susie Goodall rescued in Pacific

The Latest on the rescue of a British sailor in the Southern Ocean.

Goodall was stranded about 3,200 kilometers west of Cape Horn near the southern tip of South America.

The search and rescue operation was led by the Coastguard's equivalent in Chile, the MRCC, which immediately asked two nearby vessels to divert their course and help her.

While "beaten up and badly bruised", she was safe and had managed to bring flooding under control and get her engine going, giving her some maneuverability when the rescue ship arrived, race organizers said.

Goodall was the youngest entrant and the only woman in the Golden Globe competition that began July 1 in Les Sables-d'Olonne, France.

With her mast-less boat pitching up and down in the waves, the plan was for Goodall to manoeuvre her DHL Starlight vessel alongside the moving cargo ship and use a harness to attach herself to a swinging hook.
