The team at Cape Horn Engineering enjoyed an absolutely superb day sailing on HUGO BOSS in the Solent with skipper Alex Thomson and his crew. With challenging winds, reaching 35 knots and choppy seas, an exhilarating and extremely wet sail made for an amazing experience.
Cape Horn Engineering proudly worked alongside the Alex Thomson Racing team and French naval architects VPLP to create the new generation, foil-assisted HUGO BOSS, the first of its kind. This IMOCA Open 60 race boat will be taking part in the FASTNET on 8th August 2021.
