In 2011 I blogged about a young lady called Natasha; her father asked us to adapt a radio transmitter with Sipp and Puff switches to enable Natasha to get into switch accessible sailing of a model yacht and to encourage her to develop her sailing skills. It was a big success!

Switch accessible sailing helped Natasha learn to sail.

Follow this link to the story on the BBC website: and read about how Natasha went on to sail solo around the Isle of White on September 9th, 2012

Natasha, who started her switch accessible sailing when she was 12, has so far raised £8,224 for Isle of Wight Scope, Cowes RNLI Life Boat and the Ellen MacArthur Trust.

She said her next challenge would be the Atlantic, which she described as “my ultimate dream”.
