The Amver participating tanker Nord Nightingale braved difficult sea conditions to rescue yachtsman Clive Cockram and another crew member from their stricken yacht after it lost its mast during a leg of the Clipper 09-10 race from Japan to Los Angeles.
According to a Tradewinds story, the Denmark flagged oil tanker Nord Nightingale, owned by Norden and skippered by an American master, was more than happy to provide assistance to the injured yachtsmen. The Nord Nighingale is reportedly sailing for the port of Los Angeles/Long Beach where Cockram and his colleague will disembark.
