Natasha Lambert

Isle of Wight sailor Natasha Lambert was born with Athetoid Cerebral Palsy, which affects her limbs and confines her to a wheelchair.

As a teenager she started sailing and has become an inspiration to all with the challenges she sets herself to complete.

Challenges such as sailing around the Isle of Wight single-handedly in 2012 using a ‘Sip & Puff’ system, or climbing the 4,080ft Mount CairnGorm Mountain.

In 2020 Natasha will be attempting to sail across the Atlantic Ocean raising a target of £30,000 for three charities; the MissIsle Charity, The Ellen Macarthur Cancer Trust and The RNLI.

Below are some of the articles featuring Natasha’s inspirational activities.
