Alex Thomson was in Barcelona to announce his participation in the 2014/2015 Barcelona World Race - the two handed non stop race around the world - along with Spanish sailor Pepe Ribas.
Alex finished second in his first Barcelona World Race eight years ago with Andrew Cape. In the 2010/2011 edition, he was forced out with appendicitis. But with his third place Vendee finish this year, Alex is ready to tackle the Barcelona World Race once again.
Pepe Ribas finished fourth in the last edition of the Barcelona World Race. He has completed four laps of the planet on the fully crewed Volvo Ocean Race and has been a key member of three America’s Cup campaigns.
Exciting times ahead!
