"Solar Sailors" is the last of five original stories published in the Thunderbirds 2086 Annual in 1983.
The annual four year solar space-yacht race is underway and the team are watching the last two racers - Hogan and Gunston - for the event about to take off for their year long race to Mars and back. A few weeks into the race, both space-yachts run afoul of a meteor shower, Hogan's craft being torn to pieces. His fellow competitor Gunston radios Thunderbird 6 for help and immediately they respond to the rescue with Thunderbird 2 leading the rescue.
