A PAIR of British rowers who were stranded 1,000 miles out at sea will arrive in Gibraltar after being rescued by a cargo ship.

Fenella McAlister and her brother Martin Cruickshank were heading towards Martinique in the Caribbean when their Fifty-Fifty craft lost its rudder on January 31.

They continued rowing, hoping they would reach land, but their electricity cut out some 900 nautical miles from Martinique.

After several days at sea, they were rescued by a passing cargo ship after activating their emergency positioning beacon (Epirb) on February 9.
