We track Andy Lamont down in St. Lucia in the Caribbean during his unplanned stopover for repairs to his self-steering and electrical systems. Andy left the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia in October 2016 for his non-stop westward bound solo circumnavigation and world record attempt sailing his S&S 34 yacht 'Impulse'.

We find out all about his sailing voyage so far, the set backs and forced change of plans, during his stopover prior to heading north to the Panama Canal before crossing the Pacific Ocean on his final leg home. Andy candidly shares his thoughts about solo sailing, his adventure so far and the roller coaster of highs and lows he has experienced.
