Ocean rescue of lone Pacific sailor after skipper lost overboard

British man rescued from yacht after skipper lost overboard | World news | guardian.co.uk: ". . . Officials from the Marine Rescue Co-ordination Centre based at Falmouth in Britain reported to the US Coast Guard at 11.30pm on Saturday that one man from the 38ft (12-metre) vessel had fallen overboard and the person who remained on board had little sailing experience. . . . Two navy helicopters were sent to search from the Peleliu at about 5am on Sunday. One of them found the boat and the man on board, lowered a hoist and pulled him in. . . . Chandler said that while remote, the location of the boat was not especially surprising. "People sail pretty often pretty far out of reach," he said. "I don't think that it's that unusual.""
