A teenager with athetoid cerebral palsy will complete her 12 leg sailing challenge in Swansea today after sailing single-handedly around the south west coast of England to Wales.

17-year-old Natasha Lambert, who uses breathing alone to sail her boat via a 'sip and puff' straw mechanism engineered by her dad, set off on her 'Sea and Summit' challenge last month.

Since then she has sailed her 21ft boat Miss Isle Too around Falmouth, Plymouth and Poole before climbing Pen y Fan in the Brecon Beacons using a special walking aid.

In total Natasha will have sailed around 430 miles and climbed 2,907ft as part of the challenge, which is raising money for the RNLI, the Ellen MacArthur Trust and the RYA Foundation.
