    Background: Veteran English sailor Sir Francis Chichester, aged 71, is heading for home in his yacht Gypsy Moth Five after retiring from the transatlantic single-handed yacht race ??? England to the United States. Yesterday (Thursday June 29) a British ??? frigate with a doctor and team ready to take over Gypsy Moth were heading to give him assistance, and a French weather ship was also going to offer help. Sotter aircraft -- some from the British R.E.F. -- were flying over the lone yachtsman, but signals from Sir Francis indicated that although cold and tired, he was well enough to continue his voyage home via Brest in France.
