Andy Lamont: 40-knot Tasman Sea storm sailing
Play • 1 hr 15 min

Disaster struck the first week of Andy’s non-stop westward bound solo circumnavigation and world record sailing attempt in his S&S 34 yacht 'Impulse’. By day 3 he hit challenges he had not expected during a 40-knot storm, while sailing 150nm offshore. From genoa failure to electrical problems, water ingress into his food storage and a bizarre EPIRB activation.

After months of preparation and years of planning Andy Lamont’s first days, created challenges he did not expect. We catch up with Andy after he sailed into the CYCA in Sydney where he has undergone repairs, and upgrades to ensure that when he departs Sydney this month, he is ready for round 2 of ‘Andy Lamont sails around the world’ in the biggest adventure of his life.
