Fishing boat picks up Vestas Wind crew

 

 

Fishing boat Eliza has picked up the shipwrecked crew of Team Vestas Wind, skippered by Chris Nicholson, from the remote Ile du Sud to take them to Mauritius Island, the first stage of the journey to Abu Dhabi.

 

The crew, who were lifted off the reef by a coastguard RIB after hitting the reef at 19 knots, have literally only the clothes on their back. Team shore crew manager Neil Cox is masterminding every detail of the crew's welfare.
