Natasha Lambert, award-winning disabled sailor and adventurer from Cowes, has set off from Gran Canaria to take on her latest incredible fundraising challenge.
Natasha and her family, including mum Mandy, dad Gary and sister Rachel (along with a small crew) are taking part in the 2020 Atlantic Rally for Cruisers (ARC), a 2,700nm journey across the Atlantic from Gran Canaria to St Lucia.
Natasha has Athetoid Cerebral Palsy and gets around with the use of a wheelchair but, thanks to her engineer dad, Natasha can sail using Sip-Puff in which she uses her breath to work the controls on her boat, a Nautitech Open 46 Blown Away.
For Natasha this is the latest in a long series of challenges to raise money for Cowes RNLI station, The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust and the MissIsle School of Sip and Puff. Donate at: uk.virginmoneygiving.com/missisle
