The sailor reported that it was dark when the ship got to her but she could see the lights.

Susie Goodall, 29, was sailing solo in an around-the-world race when her yacht flipped over and was dismasted two days ago 2,000 miles from Cape Horn.

Hours later, she tweeted her delight that she had been rescued, writing: "ON THE SHIP!"

Those conditions make a rescue more hard, said Paul Owen of the International Federation of Shipmasters' Associations.

Goodall's engine failed and could not be restarted, limiting her ability to manoeuvre. Without an engine, her stricken yacht, the DHL Starlight, had to drift with its sea anchor before the master of the MV Tian Fu could maneuver the 40,000 ton cargo ship alongside it. They are trying to sail roughly 48,300 kilometres alone, non-stop and without outside assistance before returning to the same French port.
