A disabled schoolgirl is to sail across the English Channel – controlling the yacht with her tongue.link
Wheelchair-bound Natasha Lambert was born with athetoid cerebral palsy, which affects her limbs and speech.
But the determined 16-year-old will leave her chair behind to sail her 21ft adapted yacht from Boulogne to Dover.
Her father Gary developed a device, utilising a straw inside a mountain bike helmet, to help Natasha sail using just her mouth to steer.
