Natasha Lambert has reached the top of the highest peak in southern Britain after sailing 440 miles
Sip and puff sailing teen Natasha ‘Miss Isle‘ Lambert has completed her awesome Sea and Summit challenge after climbing the 2,907ft Pen Y Fan in the Brecon Beacons.
Almost exactly one month after leaving her hometown of Cowes on the Isle of Wight, the 17-year-old, who has cerebral palsy, has achieved her aim of sailing 440 miles around the South West coast of England to Wales and then climbing Pen Y Fan, the highest peak in Southern Britain.
She completed today’s climb in three-and-a-half hours, using her special walking aid, called a Hart Walker. Natasha arrived at the summit at 10.15am.
The inspirational teenager sails her 21ft boat, Miss Isle Too, by breathing through a straw in a specially-engineered bicycle helmet designed by her dad Gary.
Through the Sea and Summit challenge Natasha is raising money for the RNLI, the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust and the RYA Foundation, as well as the profile of sailing for people with disabilities. She has a target of £15,000 to raise by the end of her challenge.
