Hilary Lister Already Planning Next Trip

September 1, 2009

Disabled yachtswoman Hilary Lister, the first female quadriplegic to sail solo around Britain, today said she will need a “bigger boat” for her next adventure. Lister, 37, was greeted by cheering crowds as she reached landfall a day early at Dover, Kent, yesterday at the end of a three-month odyssey. Speaking at a homecoming reception in Dover, the Oxford-educated biochemist refused to rule out another epic voyage and said she was “completely overwhelmed” by the achievement. Despite it being less than 24 hours since she had arrived back on dry land, she was already looking at “the next project”. Lister was buffeted by high winds, held up by poor weather and was at one stage admitted to hospital during the trip which saw her sail clockwise from the coast of Devon in May.
