If I understood the narrator correctly, it was Hardy who organized the recovery of Lipinski's boat and towed it to Cascais. That's really outstanding and says everything one needs to say about the quality of the singlehanded sailing community. Rescue was well-executed by the Polish bulk carrier as well, though pity Lipinski had to stay aboard all the way to Sfaz, Tunisia.

Sad he couldn't complete the MT but terrific he got his boat back.

Thanks for sharing, Paulo.
