New solo transat record.

Alex Thompson has done it again: He had skipped (alone) the Hugo Boss (Open 60) to another record and this time a big one, The Solo Transatlantic record.

He did not only beat it he smashes it by a huge margin: more than 24 hours.

The new record it is an incredible time considering solo sailing, just 8 days 22 hours 8 minutes.

Decidedly Hugo Boss and Alex likes to rock in high winds and steep seas.
