Derry~Londonderry~Doire crew member, Andrew Taylor (46) from London was rescued from the Pacific Ocean in the early hours of this morning after falling overboard. He went over the side at 23.43 UTC last night in rough weather and was sighted again at 00.55 UTC before being recovered at approx. 01.13 UTC this morning (13.13 local time, 30 March).

The incident happened in rough weather with 35 knots of wind and clear visibility in daylight. Skipper Sean McCarter reported that he was working with Andrew on a sail change near the bow when he went over the side. Sean immediately went back to the helm, stopped the yacht and initiated the MOB (man overboard) procedure.
