A young woman with cerebral palsy has sailed 3,000 miles across the Atlantic ocean in just 18 days - using only her mouth and tongue to control the boat.<br />
<br />
Natasha Lambert, 23, used the 'sip and puff' system engineered by her electrician father to sail from Gran Canaria on the Western coast of Africa to St Lucia in the Caribbean.<br />
<br />
The trip, which hoped to raise £30,000 for three charities, took 18 days, 24 hours, 29 minutes and eight seconds to complete.   SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
