A big salvage operation is underway off the North Otago coast, as the rescued French sailors try and recover their capsized racing yacht. The operation started on Wednesday morning (NZ time) under what are described as ideal conditions. According to the report, the yacht is spreading apart and a piece of the hull is now floating 500 meters away from the rest of the trimaran.
