A French sailor walked off the cruise ship that saved him after he spent three days adrift in a life-raft in the remote Southern Ocean, smiling and assisted by his rescuers. Alain Delord was marooned on a life-raft in mountainous seas about 500 nautical miles from southern Australia's Tasmania after his yacht was badly damaged in perilous weather during a solo round-the-world sailing attempt.
