VIDEO: Vendée Globe Week 5 Highlights from HUGO BOSS

As Alex spends the day immersed in continuing repairs to HUGO BOSS here is a look at his week just gone by:

With a few more repairs now behind him, Alex has now met Cyclone Claudia. Here is his update from yesterday morning:

“Very glad to have the wind back and to be going fast agin. Yesterday and this morning was all about getting the composite repairs done to the rudder cassettes. I had hoped for good conditions but did not get them as it has rained continuously for the last 36 hours. This morning was even more difficult trying to get the laminate on while the boat was surfing over 20 knots. Thank god for duck tape otherwise all my dirty work would have been washed away. Again the job is not pretty but i hope it will be functional and I have managed to do it without losing too many miles.

I have hooked up with Claudia nicely but the road ahead is not straight forward. I will have a couple of days negotiating this low and another one which will form to my south west but hopefully whatever happens it is fast sailing and i can find a route back to the south.”
