I am paralysed from the neck down, but have been privileged to sail the English Channel, around Britain and from Mumbai to Muscat. My next challenge is to sail the Atlantic using a boat controlled by 3 straws on which I sip or puff. In turn these control motors which work the winches. In every previous challenge I have adapted a boat only to have to take the system out at the end of the sail. This time I want to show the boat to people around the world to show how easy and inexpensive it can be to adapt a boat.

Event details

Hilary's Atlantic Dream

The challenge is to sail the Atlantic in a 40 foot boat, accompanied by a carer and a "fairy God mother/father", whose job it will be to look after the boat and be there for safety reasons.
