Earlier this year Andrew's 11 year old daughter was diagnosed with Vitiligo, a pigmentation disorder. The cells that make pigment are destroyed resulting in white patches appearing on the skin, the hair growing on areas affected by Vitiligo often turns white.
Andrew is raising money to help find a cure for this condition by doing a Solo Circumnavigation of the BVI (yes that includes going around Anegada) in the IC24, Conch-querer.
Andrew out practicing after work – as you can see he is loosing the light but practice is essential
The boat has been modified to include batteries, chart plotter, autohelm and many safety features.
Seeing an IC24 out sailing in the chanel with one person sitting on the side hiking out is quite an amazing sight.
The revised date for the start is May 18th.
Have a look at the facebook page for more pictures and updates.
