Sailing to Success with Helena Lucas MBE

At Stafford Coastal Cruising Club on Tuesday 27th November at 7.30pm

British sailing’s golden girl, Helena Lucas made history claiming 2.4mR Paralympic Gold at London 2012, becoming the first-ever female winner of the male-dominated Paralympic class and Britain’s first-ever Paralympic sailing gold medallist.

Helena, who was born with no thumbs and limited extension in her arms, is in the unusual position of having done both Olympic and Paralympic campaigns.

Having sailed 470s since 1997, she moved into the Paralympic 2.4mR in 2003 before making her Paralympic Games debut at Beijing 200. She then went on to win Gold in London and Bronze in Rio.

Helena was awarded the MBE in 2013 for her services to sailing. She has won numerous medals at World Championships over her sailing career and was nominated by World Sailing for “Sailor of the Year” twice.

Helena is now focusing her career to motivate and inspire others, through coaching, motivational speaking and team-building, to be the best they can.
