2014 Challenge - Sea and Summit

Natsah Lambert at the Summit of Pen Y FanI did it! On Friday 22nd August 2014 I completed my biggest, toughest challenge to date; sailing from Cowes, Isle Of Wight around the south coast of England and across to Wales. Once I arrived in Wales I left my boat and climbed Pen y Fan, the highest mountain in South Wales using my specialized walking frame!
