Two GGR Boats Abandoned: Irish Sailor Rescued After Injured Indian Navy Commander

“We are delighted to confirm Gregor McGuckin and fellow competitor Abhilash Tomy are now onboard the French fisheries patrol vessel Osiris.” That was written on the Irish sailor’s webpage.

Further the spokespersons wrote, “McGuckin’s condition is good and has reported nothing more than bumps and bruises.” McGuckin sailed his 36-foot sailboat under jury rig after it was dismasted on September 21 in a 70-knot storm with 14-meter waves.
