Throughout his decorated career to date, British skipper Alex Thomson has broken multiple records, achieved countless accolades and continued to cement his reputation as one of the world’s most talented offshore sailors.
The youngest skipper ever to win a round-the-world yacht race, Thomson also holds the British solo, unassisted round-the-world monohull record, which he set in 2017 when he finished the gruelling Vendée Globe race – ‘the Everest of sailing’ – in just 74 days, 19 hours, 35 minutes.
