New 24-hour single-handed record set

Hugo Boss on a tear for the finish

It’s coming down to a nail biting finish of the Vendée Globe as the two boats at the front of the fleet are keeping the pedal to the ground eating up the last 1,000 miles to the finish in Les Sables-d’Olonne. So much so that Alex Thompson on Hugo Boss has set – subject to ratification – a new 24-hour single-handed record for the most distance covered in a 24-hour period. Overnight Thompson sailed an incredible 536.81 nautical miles. This is the second time that Thompson has broken the record in this

The Jackal aboard Banque Populaire

I remember as a kid trying to get my friends to like sailing. “It’s boring,” they told me. “Nothing ever happens.” And you know they were probably right. I loved sailing, but sailing was kind of boring back then. Boring no more. Just step back and take a look at our sport today. Flying boats competing for the America’s Cup. One man sailing single-handed around the world, non-stop, on a 100-foot trimaran and smashing over eight days off the record.
