Audio slideshow: Sailing against all odds
An unusual sailing crew is gearing up to compete in the North Sea Yacht Race on 1 July. All three men have lost limbs - and only have three hands and three feet between them.

The race, which takes two to three days, is one of the longest and perhaps most challenging ocean races in Northern Europe. It starts in the Norwegian port of Stavanger and finishes in Macduff, Scotland.
