The Tenacious, a British Tall Ship, rescued the stranded crew of a French yacht, which subsequently sank. This is all the more amazing because many of the crew of the Tenacious were disabled, including three people in wheelchairs. The rescue occurred recently in the Atlantic, while the Tenacious was sailing from the Canary Islands to the Caribbean. It is the largest Tall Ship to be constructed in over a hundred years, and was built by able-bodied and physically challenged volunteers. The Jubilee Trust has taken thousands of people to sea.
