The Derry-Londonderry-Doire somewhere in the Pacific Ocean on Sunday. Its crew, scrambling to win the 'round the world Clipper yacht race. Then suddenly, a crew member realizes someone's gone overboard. Everyone goes into rescue mode. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SKIPPER, SEAN MCCARTER, MAKING MAYDAY CALL: "Mayday, mayday, mayday. This is Charlie Victor three zero. We have a man overboard..." They're looking for a 46-year-old British man, Andrew Taylor from London. There he is. He spent an hour and a half in the water before he was found. (SOUNDBITE) (English) BRITISH MAN WHO FELL OVERBOARD, ANDREW TAYLOR, SAYING: "I didn't know if you were looking for me or not, I didn't know if you'd seen me....I tried to stay so that I could see the boat, I kept moving myself around, swimming round so I could see the boat thinking you'd be back really quickly, but it just got further and further away." Taylor was treated for shock and possibly hypothermia. Other yachts diverted to help in the search, and the race is now resumed.
