Optimist Sailing with Hugo Boss
On Wednesday 21st
May (Cannes Film Festival Week), we were training at Antibes when we saw a big black boat in the distance. It started sailing towards us. When it got closer I managed to pick out the letters on it! It said “Hugo Boss”. I knew it was an IMOCA60. I also knew that Alex Thomson was the skipper of Hugo Boss and had finished 3rd
in the Vendee Globe.
All of the Optimist sailors came along and we said hello to Hugo Boss. Then Alex went away, and we went back to the shore.
PS I just received my latest Rooster order with a thermaflex
wetsuit - I wore it for the first time this afternoon for training. I am very happy with it.
