New 24 Hour Distance Record

Alex Thomson (one of our top British Skippers) and his crew have now officially broken the 24hr distance world record, set earlier this year, in a 60ft monohull.  

Sailing ‘HUGO BOSS’, an IMOCA 60 race boat based in Haslar Marina-Gosport, Alex travelled 539.71 nM over 24 hours at an average speed of 22.49 knots, ratified last week by the World Sailing Speed Record Council.
