Spectacular video of the IMOCA60 Hugo Boss (Alex Thomson) filmed off the coast of Portugal and hitting a staggering 33.2 knots in rough seas.
Thomson finished second in the last Vendee Globe,despite breaking his starboard DSS foil just after entering the Southern Ocean. One the way he set two sailing records – including the 24 hour record for a singlehanded sailor.
Hugo Boss is powered by Doyle Sails, who also provided the complete inventory for Thomson’s previous Vendee Globe, where he finished in third place.
Special thanks to Paulo Mirpuri and Mirpuri Foundation for capturing these incredible scenes.
