The Yacht’s Story

Andy bought Impulse in 2014, then sailed her up from Sydney to her new home on the Gold Coast. In 2015-16 she was stripped back and fully restored, with the aim of completing a nonstop unassisted solo east-west circumnavigation.

Andy is planning to start his westward circumnavigation on Oct 2 2016, circumnavigating, click to go to his website www.andylamont.com.au for more info and to offer support.
