Alex Thomson Smashes Transatlantic Record

(Source: Navtec) Lewmar and Navtec would like to express our congratulations to Alex Thomson, who sailed HUGO BOSS over the finish line yesterday evening to break the single-handed monohull transatlantic record by more than 24 hours.

Fully equipped with Navtec’s Z-System PBO rigging and Anti-Torsion PBO forestays, Alex’s achievement adds to Navtec’s already impressive list of records :

•Overall Transatlantic West to East Record (Banque Populaire 5)
•Single-Handed Round the World Record (IDEC)
•Single-Handed East to West (Cadiz / San Salvador) (IDEC)
•Jules Verne (Overall Round the World Record) (Banque Populaire 5)
•24H Distance Record (Banque Populaire 5)

Navtec will be supplying a brand new set of PBO to HUGO BOSS in August as he attempts to become the first British winner of the Vendee Globe later this year.

  1. Nice work to the Boss team. But surely, that current set of PBO rigging can't be very old can it?
