How Indian Navy Tracked Down Missing Naval Officer in Indian Ocean

Indian Navy sailor Abhilash Tomy injured in the Indian Ocean is rescued

The commander's friends have been in touch with another participant, Gregor McGuckin, an Ireland national whose yacht Biscay 36 Hanley Energy Endurance was also dismasted in the same storm.

The French fisheries patrol vessel Osiris, which carries medical support, is making her way from a position 123 miles south, but experiencing adverse seas and making only 4.1knots.

Indian naval officer Abhilash Tomy, 39, was competing in the 2018 Golden Globe Race.

Extremely choppy seas and low visibility are hindering global efforts to rescue a celebrated Indian sailor stuck over 3,500 km off Australia after a storm Friday damaged his boat and left him with an incapacitating back injury.

Australian Navy frigate HMAS Ballarat is on the way to reach Tomy, he said.

An Indian navy stealth frigate, operating in the Indian Ocean, has also been diverted for the rescue mission along with an Indian tanker and military plane, according to race organisers.

Tomy had suffered a back injury Friday after his yacht was hit by a vicious storm with 14-metre-high waves mid-way across south Indian Ocean. "The situation is being closely monitored by the Naval headquarters in New Delhi and the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Melbourne".

The Indian Navy's P8I aircraft, which flew from Mauritius in the early hours Sunday, has located the "mast broken boat rolling excessively", he said.

But heavy rain and a stormy sea meant Commander Tomy could only be rescued by a ship.

Abhilash, who is known for his solo cruise around the world in 2012-2013, suffered a back injury when he was sailing on a vessel, representing India in the Golden Globe Race 2018. Tomy is also the only Indian participating in the gruelling Golden Globe Race that involves a 30,000-mile solo circumnavigation of the globe.

Tomy was in the third position and had sailed almost 20,000km in the last 84 days.

An worldwide rescue team is trying to reach a seriously injured Indian sailor who is taking part in the Golden Globe round-the-world race.

On Sunday morning, the Navy deputed a P-9I aircraft to trace the officer's whereabouts.

Race organisers said the engine issues might have been caused by fuel contamination when the yacht was rolled and dismasted on Friday.

It had also said other entrants were asked to make towards Tomy's position if possible, and added that the weather was extreme. No modern technology is allowed except for communication equipment.

The GGR is being organised to celebrate 50 years since the 1968-69 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, to complete an unassisted, solo, non-stop circumnavigation of the world via the Great Capes.
