"A spokesman for Spanish Coastguards said in a tweet, naming the vessel the tourist was pictured alongside as it approached him to pull him from the sea: 'Salvamar Vega yesterday rescued and took to Estepona a man discovered by a yacht 10 miles south-west of Marbella.

"'He was adrift on a surfboard. The man who was rescued said he had been at sea for three days after falling from a ship.' "

MSN report: Link

And at the Olive Press (Spain): Link

"British man on surfboard rescued off Marbella ‘three days after falling from cruise ship’"

Well he is lucky, he must have been quite dehydrated by that stage unless there was plenty of rain.

I can only presume he didnt know to paddle east or didnt know the sun rises in the east.
