A British sailor died after his yacht sank in stormy seas off the Canary Islands. The 64-year-old lost his life during a rescue operation sparked after he sent out a mayday call.
A fellow Brit, 43, also on board the yacht Snooker, survived after being picked up by a tanker that answered the mayday alert.
The pair left Lisbon last Thursday and were thought to be heading towards Lanzarote for a stopover before continuing to the Caribbean.
They got into trouble as their yacht was battered by 23-foot high waves and winds averaging 45 knots.
