Cargo Ship Rescues Australian Sailor in the Pacific Ocean
Another interesting abandon and rescue
. Many queations raised
"An exhausted Australian sailor has been rescued in the middle of the Pacific Ocean
. A cargo ship picked up Juan Dario Zea Restrepo about 425 nautical miles off Christmas
Island in the Republic of Kiribati on Monday night (US time)."
"The US Coast Guard said Mr Restrepo had been manually navigating his vessel, Folly II, for four weeks and called for help after becoming too tired to continue."
"In his profile on a sailing website Mr. Restrepo described himself as a “greenie sailor”."
"So, rather than appear foolish afterward, I renounce seeming clever now."
William of Baskerville
"You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm."
