British Couple Survives 6 Weeks Stranded At Sea

A British couple has survived 6 weeks stranded at sea, 40 days to be exact. The couple left Cape Verde Islands on January 9th. They were headed to Antigua, where they were going to stay until April.

Half way through their journey the rudder jammed. This caused them to go in circles at sea. They tried all they could to correct this, but to no avail. They were rescued by an Italian tanker in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
