The UK’s Daily Mail has reported that Paul and Rachel Chandler, the couple kidnapped off their 38-foot sailboat and held for more than a year by Somali pirates, have resumed their round-the-world trip.

After restoring the S/Y Lynn Rival, they departed England in early September, saying their family and friends, who raised 625,000 pounds in ransom money, wanted them to get back to the life they loved, which is sailing.
