Alex Thomson Hugo Boss Talk and opening of the London Landing on Friday 14 July
Published 12:18 on 22 Jul 2017
We were very excited that Member Alex Thomson was able to open the London Landing prior to speaking on his experiences in the Vendee Globe 16/17, in which he finished second and broke the 24 hour distance record.
This was a wonderful Royal London evening. A great speaker; an amazing story; Alex brought his adventures and challenges to life so vividly that all attending were immersed and felt they experienced them.
Auction of a day on Hugo Boss
Alex and the Commodore mentored Member Chris Rashley who is undertaking a foiling Nacra 17 campaign to compete in the 2020 Olympics. Alex very kindly allowed us to auction a day on Hugo Boss with the proceeds going towards Chris' campaign. Vice Commodore David Gower very skilfully managed the auction which raised a significant sum.
