    Default Hilary Lister: quadriplegic sailor dies aged 46

    Very sad news that Hilary Lister has died at such a young age.

    If my foresight was as good as my hindsight, I would be a multi-millionaire.

    Very sad to hear this.

    I met her some years ago, when I called into Ramsgate.

    I knew nothing about her, and was strolling around the pontoons looking at interesting boats.

    I'd been admiring an amazing, hi tec, keel boat, for a while, trying to work out what all the bits of string did, when a specially equipped van pulled up.

    It was Hilary, her sister, and another helper.

    They were all very happy to chat for twenty minutes or so.

    Hialry was then craned into a gimballed cocoon type thing, a control tube put in her mouth, and she went skimming off across the harbour in very fine style

    An extraordinarily talented, charming and inspiring young woman, with a real zest for life.

    Very sad. But she lived her short and challenging life to the full. A brilliant example to us all.

    Thank you Hilary. Not going to tell you to rest in peace. If there is a challenge where you have gone. Do it.

    This brilliant lady deserved better from this life, I hope she continues to inspire in the next one with less cost to herself.

    I met her boat in Whitehills in the Moray Firth. The lady herself wasn't around
