Manic Monday: Mast Walk by Alex Thomson

Solo sailor Alex Thomson has a flair for drama, much to the delight of sponsor Hugo Boss.

As our UK editor Gael Pawson puts it, Alex Thomson is “Talented, fiercely competitive and fun.” And since sailing around the world alone apparently isn’t enough of a challenge, Alex has just pulled off a dramatic yachting stunt: the mast walk. For those of us who’ve been to the top of a much shorter mast (which remained vertical over a calm harbor), all we can say is “Don’t look down, mate.”
