The Clipper sailor who fell overboard in the Pacific last month has rejoined the crew on the Derry-Londonderry yacht

Clipper sailor Andrew Taylor has rejoined

the crew onboard Derry-Londonderry

after falling overboard last month.

The 46-year-old, who fell into the Pacific

during the early hours of March 30, was treated for shock and hypothermia after

the incident.

He later received the all clear from

doctors in San Francisco and has now set off with the rest of the crew as they

head to Panama.

Mr Taylor fell overboard during a sail

change in rough weather and was eventually rescued after more than an hour in

the water.

The fleet had been sailing in winds of 35

knots when the incident occurred on day 14 of race 10.

The Clipper sailor is reportedly still

suffering from a sore leg but says he is determined to complete the race

alongside his fellow crew.
