The yachtswoman from Falmouth, Cornwall, was competing in a 30,000-mile round-the-world race when a “ferocious” storm triggered her to lose her mast.

She was in fourth place when “huge seas” and 60-knot (69mph) winds broken her Rustler 36 yacht DHL Starlight on Wednesday.

Her misery sign was picked up by the Falmouth coastguard who alerted Chilean maritime search and rescue authorities.

They contacted a ship 480 miles southwest of Susie’s location and requested for assist.

A 38,000-tonne cargo ship arrived alongside her yacht, however its damaged engine made the manoeuvre very troublesome.

She was the one lady competing within the race, in addition to being the youngest competitor.

It takes 9 months to finish the solo race and no know-how or satellite tv for pc gear is used.

An individual tweeting on her behalf added: “Susie has activated her SART (Search And Rescue Transponder) to allow them to find her by way of radio (not really easy from a 190m-long ship!) , dropped her sea anchor and is testing the engine.

“If her engine is working (it was briefly), Susie will motor alongside, placed on her lifejacket and climbing harness, and prepare to clip in. There’ll even be a bag or 2 she will tie on.

“Now comes the difficult half… As a result of each Susie’s boat and the ship are swaying, the crane can be removed from regular. She’ll need to time it proper and put together to be yanked off the boat. Fingers crossed!”

She later instructed officers: “I’ve been dismasted. Thought I had holed the hull as a result of the boat stuffed with water, however the hull isn’t holed. The hull is OK. The boat is destroyed. I can’t make up a jury rig. The one factor left is the hull and deck which stay intact.

“We have been pitchpoled [rolled end over end] and I used to be thrown throughout the cabin and knocked out for some time.”
