French authorities patched the call for assistance through to Falmouth Coastguard. They arranged for the rescue of the man, who was thought to be suffering from a fractured ankle, at around 8pm.

He was taken from the vessel L’ar Voaleden in poor visibility and transported to Treliske hospital, where he is recovering this morning.
