A teen sails a boat in the English Channel alone

Today is Independence Day. It seems only right that I write about the teen girl Natasha Lambert who managed to  sail a boat alone. Sailing a boat is a difficult task for anyone let alone someone with cerebral palsy. Natasha is not new to sailing either. This week she managed the challenging job of sailing that boat using only her mouth. 

Natasha completed the 25 miles in under five hours. Along the way, she defeated fog and steered her boat by puffing. Mr Lambert, her father built the device for her. Natasha raised money for 3 different charities. In 2012 she raised over £12, 000 alone for the same charities. 

Natasha experiences freedom and control whilst sailing. She added" Its about leaving my wheelchair and feeling free".
