How we helped with switch accessible sailing
We love seeing people doing so well especially when it’s our customers.
You may remember us blogging about Natasha Lambert’s father who came to us about switch accessible sailing. In short she wanted to sail the seas but her cerebral palsy prevented her from using the sail boats currently on the market.
We took on the challenge and adapted the radio transmitter with a Sipp and Puff transmitter on her model yacht, so she could practice the art of sailing on the model before she got out on the sea. Since the test model, Natasha Lambert has used the Sipp and Puff method in a real yacht and has achieved what dreams are made of. Of course, it wasn’t going to be long before she caught the attention of the Queen and was awarded an BEM. How amazing is she?
17 year old Natasha Lambert has been sailing since she was just 12 years old and has sailed solo around the Isle of Wight, across the Channel and has embarked on various walking challenges.
I’m sure you’ll agree, she’s a remarkable young woman and provides hope and inspiration to many with cerebral palsy. We’re honored to have assisted her in creating switch accessible sailing.
Get involved with switch accessible sailing
Natasha has her own charity Miss Isle which provides sailing tuition using the Sipp and Puff method to youngsters with disabilities. She’s so passionate about sailing she wants to get people into it who wouldn’t normally.
We’d say that her drive, ambition and sheer determination deserves a BEM and more.
Well done Natasha!
