Alex Thomson

After 9 weeks at sea Hampshire sailor Alex Thomson is in 4th position in the Vendee Globe, 847nm behind the current leader Francois Gabart. This has been a steady position for Thomson who has been in 4th place pretty consistently over the last month as he sailed across the Pacific part of the Southern Ocean and part of the Indian Ocean.

Hugo Boss is now around 4400nm away from the finish which is expected to take Thomspon around 17-20 days, so he should hopefully cross the finish line by the end of the month.

We will be following Alex’s progress closely over the next few weeks…. and are keeping everything crossed for him!
