Eco sailors rescued by oil tanker

[Sweet. The latest pointless green publicity seeking stunt to go badly wrong. God obviously does have a sense of humour!]
An expedition team which set sail from Plymouth on a 5,000-mile carbon emission-free trip to Greenland have been rescued by an oil tanker.
Raoul Surcouf, Richard Spink and skipper Ben Stoddart sent a mayday because they feared for their safety amid winds of 68mph (109km/h).
All three are reportedly exhausted but safe on board the Overseas Yellowstone.
