After finishing in third place in the 2012-2013 Vendée Globe, Thomson will this year seek to make history and become the first British sailor ever to win the iconic race.
Thomson will do so on-board his new IMOCA 60 racing yacht, HUGO BOSS - a yacht which, after more than two years in the making, was unveiled at the end of 2015.
With just nine months to go until the Vendée Globe begins, Alex Thomson Racing has unveiled the first in a twelve part series, documenting Thomson’s preparations and progress ahead of the race.
#RoadtoVendee will bring viewers closer than ever before to Thomson, not only as a professional yachtsman but as a brand ambassador, husband, father and loyal team member.
Episode one, unveiled today, sets the scene as the Alex Thomson Racing team prepare for the start of the Ocean Masters Vendée Globe. It features a unique insight from the legendary Sir Robin Knox-Johnston and Managing Director of Alex Thomson Racing, Stewart Hosford. In 1969 Sir Robin Knox-Johnston became a hero for being the first man to perform a single-handed, non-stop circumnavigation of the globe.
