Sip and puff sailing teen Natasha ‘Miss Isle’ Lambert has today (Friday 22 August) completed her awesome Sea and Summit challenge after climbing the 2,907ft Pen Y Fan in the Brecon Beacons this morning.
Almost exactly one month after leaving her hometown of Cowes on the Isle of Wight, the incredible 17-year-old, who has cerebral palsy, has achieved her aim of sailing 440 miles around the South West coast of England to Wales before swapping her boat for her special walking aid, called a Hart Walker, to climb Pen Y Fan, the highest peak in Southern Britain.
She completed today's climb in three-and-a-half hours, arriving at the summit at 10.15am. Natasha 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.
