"Two sailors who started drifting after losing their rudder have told of their
surreal experience when a replica 18th-century merchant ship arrived to rescue
them off the coast of France.
The largest ocean-going wooden sailing ship in the world, Götheborg of
, was heading for its upcoming port stop in Jersey when it received a
distress call from the MRCC (Maritime Rescue Co-ordination Centres) about a
small sailing boat that was drifting after losing its rudder.
As the closest ship to the boat in distress, the 58-metre Götheborg
the call and towed the sailing boat during the night of 26 April 2023."
