Ocean Rainbow on a mercy mission

Ocean Rainbow spotted Fantasie in trouble in the Bristol Channel this afternoon.  With winds gusting 30 knots Fantasie was dismasted but her crew managed to rescue the mast, rigging and sails despite the bumpy seas.  OR stood by at the ready but we were not needed nor were the crew of Portishead lifeboat who arrived in time to ensure that Fantasie entered Portishead Marina safely under her own engine power – with the tide ebbing fast it was not a foregone conclusion!
