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.

Disabled sailor Natasha Lambert has made it to the City of London in her specially adapted 21ft yacht, Miss Isle Too.
The incredible teenager has sailed all the way from Cowes on the Isle of Wight to St Katharine Docks. Natasha (17) has cerebral palsy, has little control over her movements and sails only by breathing through a straw which controls an electronic system designed by her dad, Gary.
This completes the sailing stage of her latest challenge, known as Capital Venture. After her epic sail of over two hundred miles along the south coast and up the Thames she will now swap her boat for a special walker to undertake a fund raising walk around the square mile of the City of London on Tuesday.
Natasha set off from Cowes on 23 May, sailed to Brighton, Eastbourne, Dover, Queenborough on the Isle of Sheppey, braved an extremely cold long day to sail up the River Thames to Albert Dock then today, on a bright and breezy day, she sailed up to Tower Bridge before turning into St Katharine Docks.
Natasha is undertaking the challenge to raise funds for her own charity, “missisle's school of sip and puff sailing”, which will give others with a similar disability the chance to enjoy sailing by “sip and puff”, using only their breath to control a sailing boat. (missisle.org.uk)
Natasha has already sailed around the Isle of Wight, crossed the Channel and sailed over five hundred miles to Wales before climbing the South’s highest peak.
