Anyone Know About a Small Boat that Sailed from England to Tahiti and Capsized ?

Wondering if anyone can help? What type of boat was it?
I read about a traditional Scotish yawl, 19' I think. Sailed by a man & a woman from England to Tahiti. the photo's looked 70's?
Capsised during difficult conditions: although swamped, they (eventually) got going again by emptying jerricans and jamming them up under quarter berths to give enough freeboard to bail. After a long jury-rigged journey, they got towed the last few miles to American Samoa.

read it somewhere on or linked from the Duckworks site:
