VIDEO: Vendée Globe Week 7 Highlights from HUGO BOSS

At the end of Week 7 and with Alex midway across the Pacific here is team director, Stewart Hosford’s, weekly update

“Alex crossed the international date line and jumped back in-time in the early morning of Christmas Eve, and well ahead of my predictions, as a consequence he had two Christmas Eve days. His short Christmas day video message is guaranteed to make you want to edge even closer to the fireplace over the holiday break..

“Alex in the last few days has passed another very important milestone that we talked about before this race started and that was to get further in this race than he has previously gone (passed a long time ago in the Indian Ocean) but also to pass the furthest point that the boat had also gone before (in the last Vendee Globe Seb Josse sailed this boat to ~900 miles past New Zealand branded BT). Alex is now well past this point and pointing straight at the final ice gate – Pacific East and onwards to Cape Horn. The routing shows Alex is likely to pass cape Horn sometime around the 3rd or 4th of January. I have to tell you that as a team, getting Alex out of the Southern Ocean and back into the Atlantic, will be a HUGE relief to us all.”
