The Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) provides a fast and efficient way of calling for assistance at sea, whatever the size of craft or its geographical position. Since it was first published, this book has helped explain the system for anyone using GMDSS and has been excellent pre-course reading for students.

Disabled Teenage Sailor Honoured by Marine Industry

Natasha Award

Disabled teenage sailor Natasha ‘Miss Isle’ Lambert sailed into the PSP Southampton Boat Show to be met and congratulated by Directors of the British Marine Federation and senior figures in the marine industry after her epic Sea and Summit challenge.

Natasha sailed her 21ft boat, Miss Isle Too, only by breathing through a straw in a specially-engineered helmet designed by her dad Gary.

 

Almost exactly one month after leaving her hometown of Cowes on the Isle of Wight (24 July), the incredible 17-year-old, who has cerebral palsy, sailed over 500 miles around the South West coast of England to Wales before swapping her boat for her special walking aid, called a Hart Walker, to climb Pen Y Fan, the highest peak in Southern Britain.

Through the Sea and Summit challenge Natasha is raising money for the RNLI, the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust and the RYA Foundation, as well as the profile of sailing for people with disabilities. She has a target of £15,000.
