Well I am a month late but I stumbeld upon this on the BBC website...

If you can't view that then there is a report on the 64 year old's inspiring story here from 20 years ago and the 30th anniversary,

It was a little before I was born, but I have seen the boat at Greenwich and remember the awe conveyed to me by my parents when we visited about what he achieved and how he did it.

 

It is an inspiring story and a reminder that regardless of your age if you set your mind to something you can achieve what seems impossible.
