A British yachtsman has climbed to the top of his 60-foot boat, which is the height of a 10-storey building, while it sails through the waves.
Alex Thomson, from Titchfield in Hampshire has established himself as a daredevil in the sport of sailing.
After safely returning to dry land, Thomson said: "We have been planning this trick for a very long time. There were lots of things that could have gone terribly wrong:
The wind could have pulled me off the mast and catapulted me onto the deck; I could have hit the water at the wrong angle or surfaced too quickly.
Luckily (and despite my fear of heights), we succeeded in pulling it off. And as things turned out, the stunt was far more dangerous than I would ever have imagined. All in all, I can honestly say that it was the most stupid thing I’ve ever done in my whole life!”
Hampshire sailor Alex Thomson has performed a daring feat by climbing the top of this high-speed yacht and diving into the ocean - all whilst the yacht was sailing at a 60 degree angle.
The 39-year-old is keen to find new ways to use his yacht and has been planning this trick for months beforehand.
The stunt was performed on the Spanish coast near Cadiz and in case of emergency a medical team remained near by and driver sailed alongside the yacht.
On the 24th July, Natash Lambert, 16, will sail from her hometown of Cowes, on the Isle of Wight, to embark on a month-long challenge sailing her 21ft Mini Transat, Miss Isle Too, single-handed down the South West coast of England to Wales.
Natasha was born with cerebral palsy, which affects her limbs. This weekend she has officially revealed her incredible 2014 sailing challenge: ‘Sea and Summit’.
Natasha's condition means she does not have use of her hands, so she sails her yacht using her mouth to operate a ‘sip and puff’ mechanism engineered by her father. It is operated via a straw mounted inside a cycling helmet.
Having completed the sailing part, Natasha will then swap her boat for her special walking aid, called a Hart Walker and will climb Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons, the highest peak in Britain south of the Snowdonia mountain range.
