Natasha Lambert, a 17-year-old girl with cerebral palsy, has set a goal of sailing more than 400 nautical miles.

The young yachtswoman set sail on a specially designed boat, which can be controlled by breathing - by feeding air into a system of tubes, the girl is able to regulate the direction of the boat. What's interesting: this very control system was created by the girl's father.

The fearless skier is on the 21-foot yacht with her coach who gives instructions and does not take part in the steering.

By now the British girl is already half way around the British Isles. After the journey is over, Natasha Lambert plans to climb the highest mountain peak in Northern Ireland.
