B&G proud to support award winning disabled sailor Natasha Lambert

B&G®, the world's leading sailing navigation and instrument specialist, is proud to be supporting Natasha Lambert, BEM multi award-winning disabled sailor and adventurer in her latest challenge, the ARC 2020.

Natasha began sailing at age 9, and despite being born with quadriplegic cerebral palsy has since been enduring various challenges and pushing herself to the limit, and raise money for charity. She is now preparing to begin her biggest challenge yet, the ARC, beginning on 22nd November, guided by B&G.

In August 2018, Natasha took delivery of her new boat a Bavaria Nautitech Open 46, named "Blown Away," which was fitted with a full B&G system. The equipment on board includes Zeus™3, Triton" instrument displays, NAC3 autopilot computer, H90 radio with AIS and H50 handheld radio. Natasha's father Gary has developed a sip and puff control system, which is integrated with the B&G system on board, allowing Natasha to control the boat herself.

The first part of this new adventure was getting Blown Away from the UK to Gran Canaria, ready for the start of the ARC in November. We spoke to Amanda Lambert, Natasha's mum about their crossing, "Natasha was delighted by the way the systems performed on route to Gran Canaria. Her system is integrated into the autopilot, so when she needs to control the sheets she operates her tongue switch, which both changes the function of the straw from helm to sheets, and activates the autopilot, this helps her to maintain her course whilst she adjusts the sheets and everything worked impeccably."

"Blown Away" is now staying in Gran Canaria ready for the race, whilst Natasha and her family are at home making final preparations before their journey begins. B&G will be following their journey via the yellow brick tracker, and sharing her blog as she documents her time on board.
