Commander Abhilash Tomy, who is representing India in an global sailing event, has suffered serious back injury after a storm dismasted his yacht while sailing in the Indian Ocean.
Cdr Tomy is stranded in the south Indian Ocean, approximately 1,900 nautical miles (nm) from Perth and 2,700 nm from Cape Comorin near Kanyakumari.
Tomy was taking part in the Golden Globe race around the world when his yacht was damaged and its mast broken in a storm on Friday.
The Maritime Rescue Coordination Center in Canberra, Australia, was in charge of the rescue operation, with Australian, French and Indian naval vessels, and other yachts from the competition racing through rough conditions to reach him.
Race officials had sent messages to Tomy with the inteniton of keeping him updated with the rescue plans.
He managed to send a message saying he has a severe back injury and is immobilised, unable to eat or drink. "Can't walk. Might need stretcher", Tomy said in a brief message on Saturday as he waited, some 3,000km from Perth.
His vessel, SV Thuriya, is stuck in a remote location in the southern Indian Ocean.

He was in third place in the Golden Globe Race when the storm hit.

Most of the 11 competitors, who are still in the race, were further north and thus avoided the worst of the storm, organisers said.
