Disabled teenage sailor, Natasha Lambert is to take to the water again on for another daring challenge – Miss Isle’s Capital Venture…

Natasha has so far sailed around the Isle of Wight, crossed the Channel, sailed over 500 miles around the South West coast of England to Wales before swapping her boat for her special walking aid to climb Pen Y Fan, the highest peak in Southern Britain.

Now Natasha, who has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair, plans to sail East and conquer the City of London in a bid to raise funds for her own new charity, missisle's school of sip and puff sailing.

Cool Breeze to Eastbourne

Disabled teenage sailor, Natasha Lambert is another sail closer to her destination, having arrived in Eastbourne late yesterday after a good but chilly sail from Brighton.

This is the second leg of her incredible new challenge, Capital Venture - a sail of over two hundred miles from Cowes to the centre of London, ending with a mile long walk around the City of London.

Natasha left Brighton later than planned on Sunday after encountering some gremlins with her yacht’s electrical systems. She and her coach, offshore solo sailor Nikki Curwen, then enjoyed a great sail to Eastbourne, a distance of 24 miles. With wind and tide in their favour Natasha’s specially-designed 21ft yacht, Miss Isle Too was soon surfing the waves.

Shelley Jory-Leigh is one of the land crew for the challenge and she spoke to BBC Radio Solent's Steve Harris this morning about Natasha's progress so far.
