Quadriplegic woman embarks on solo sailing around UK
"We've broken everything that can be broken and everything that could have gone wrong has gone wrong, so we've got to be OK now."

Off the British Isles - A quadriplegic woman, the first quadriplegic to sail across the English Channel, now is embarking on a record-breaking journey to sail alone around the British Isles in a boat controlled only by her breath, media reported Tuesday.
Her journey will raise money for her charity, Hilary's Dream Trust, which aims to help other people with disabilities achieve their dreams of sailing.
