Paul Chandler, Rachel Chandler: What’s the matter?
British couple dreamed of a trip to the Indian Ocean. The couple was taken from their yacht by Somali pirates. The Somali pirates then kidnapped the couple from their yacht and took them to Somalia, where they suffered daily psychological and physical torture. Following a ransom, the prisoners were allowed to be released. Paul Chandler (then 56 and 61 respectively) was from Tunbridge Wells, when they were captured by pirates. The couple was enjoying their retirement on Lynn Rival 38ft, which they were sailing across the globe in their retired years.
