Disabled teenager Natasha Lambert sailed into the PSP Southampton Boat Show to a huge welcome from the British Marine industry.
Natasha arrived in her 21ft yacht "Miss Isle Too" after completing her Sea and Summit challenge earlier this year. She sailed over 500 miles from Cowes to Swansea and then swapped her adapted yacht for a special walker which enable her to scale the highest peak in Southern Britain, Pen Y Fan.
As Natasha came alongside she was met by the President of the British Marine Federation (BMF) Fiona Pankhust, Vice Presidents David Pougher and Arthur Bennett, CEO of the BMF Howard Pridding, Chairman of National Boat Shows, Peter Gordon and MD Murray Ellis.
