“The boat is performing really well. It feels like we’ve made some very good design decisions”.


Since returning to the water, Alex and the crew have completed a further 4,000 offshore training miles on HUGO BOSS. We’re impressed with the boat’s performance and pleased to see that some of the big decisions we made – particularly in relation to the set up and ergonomics – are paying off.

With those miles our under belt – and Alex’s qualification for the Vendée Globe finalised – HUGO BOSS has gone into the shed for her final service ahead of the Vendée Globe.

Over the next few weeks, each component of the boat will be checked and serviced, a process which takes place before every round-the-world yacht race.

Once the service is complete, HUGO BOSS will go back into the water and Alex will re-commence training for the challenge that awaits on 8th November….
