The solo sailing blog: A slightly traumatic day
I had somewhat of a traumatic day yesterday out at sea and had to make an emergency repair as HUGO BOSS’ hydro generator broke, in turn damaging the starboard tie bar of my rudder.
I am currently the leading British sailor, sitting in 6th place in the race and holding onto the lead group. I’m just playing my own game and really I shouldn’t be as fast as them but somehow I seem to be, things are going right. I’ve got some great sails and I seem to be going in the right direction.Tagged in: Alex Thomson, hugo boss, Sables d’Olonne, sailing, Vendée Globe
