Hugo Boss is a majestic monochrome 60ft yacht – the most powerful in her class. Since completing the Barcelona World Race earlier this year, the boat has competed in the Giraglia Rolex Cup, the Rolex Fastnet Race and the Artemis Challenge.  Under a previous name, Pindar, she finished fifth in the last Vendée Globe, with British sailor Brian Thompson at the helm.  Alex Thomson and Guillermo Altadill have been sailing together since June this year, and sailed the double-handed Transat Jacques Vabre race together across the Atlantic from Le Havre, France to Costa Rica in November, coming 2nd in class.
