Natasha Lambert, who has athertoid cerebral palsy, arrived in St Katharine Docks this week after sailing 300 miles using only her breath.
Natasha’s Artemis 20 yacht Miss Isle is equipped with new sip and puff technology designed by her father, which enables her to manoeuvre the boat using a straw that turns the rudder right when sipped and left when puffed.
She was taking part in the Miss Isle’s Capital Venture, which aims to raise funds for a new charity being set-up to teach disabled people to sail using sip and puff technology.
Capital Venture is the latest in what is becoming a long list of achievements for Natasha. In 2014, she undertook the Sea and Summit challenge which saw her sail more than 500 miles from Cowes to South Wales and climb Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons.
St Katharine Docks marina director William Bowman said: “Natasha is a truly inspiring youngster who is raising awareness and money to create a new charity to help others with disabilities to learn to sail.
"We would like to wish Natasha and her team every success, and are only too pleased to host the London leg of this fantastic challenge.”
The charity has raised nearly £20,000 towards the campaign.
