Davies, who was eliminated from the solo, round-the-world Vendee Globe after the dismasting of her yacht, limped into Madeira on November 17. The 38-year-old, the only woman in the world's most gruelling yacht race, saw her boat dismasted on Thursday evening in strong winds about 130 nautical miles northeast of Madeira, the Portuguese island in the Atlantic Ocean.
