A man from Llandudno Junction is waiting to be rescued after his yacht overturned between Tonga and New Zealand. A rescue is hoped to take place on Friday.
Stephen Jones was sailing along with a woman from Aukland when their boat Windigo overturned at around 1830 (NZ time) on Wednesday.
Maritime New Zealand say both are understood to have sustained head injuries after their yacht rolled after leaving Tonga two days ago. Stephen is also thought to have suffered a back injury. None of the injuries are believed to be serious.
The Rescue Coordination Centre New Zealand (RCCNZ) has diverted a freighter, the Chengtu, to the yacht's position and it is likely to arrive in the area sometime after 1am, at the around the same time as another yacht, Adventure Bound.
It will be extremely uncomfortable and the people aboard are tired, but the yacht is still afloat so the correct approach is to remain onboard.
