British yachtsman rescued

 

SYDNEY - British yachtsman Tony Bullimore has been rescued from his capsized boat, Globe Exide Challenger in the Southern Ocean and is now aboard the frigate Adelaide, a defence department spokesman said early today.

Mr Bullimore swam out from underneath his upturned yacht after crewmen aboard an inflatable craft from Australian navy frigate HMAS Adelaide banged on the hull, a rescue spokesman said in Perth, Western Australia.
