Hugo Boss

El defensor del título

El Hugo Boss con el que Alex Thomson y Pepe Ribes disputan la Barcelona World Race 2014/15 es el antiguo Virbac Paprec 3, vencedor de la pasada edición de la regata, y destacable también por sus innovaciones técnicas. Bajo los mandos de Jean-Pierre Dick, la unidad se clasificó en el cuarto puesto de la Vendée Globe 2012/13, a pesar de navegar sin quilla durante 2.650 millas. El equipo Alex Thomson Racing compró el barco y llevó a cabo un completo refit, que incluyó la instalación de una nueva quilla. El IMOCA 60 volvió a tocar el agua en abril de 2014 y de camino a América para tomar parte en su primera regata, la IMOCA Ocean Masters New York to Barcelona Race, perdió el palo. Tras la reparación, el nuevo Hugo Boss se estrenó con una victoria en esta prueba, tripulado por Pepe Ribes y Ryan Breymaier (que sustituyó a Alex porque la regata coincidía con el nacimiento de su segundo hijo).

"HUGO BOSS DISMASTED IN THE SOUTH ATLANTIC
HUGO BOSS lost their rig this evening at 21.02 GMT, 370 nautical miles off the coast of Brazil
Alex Thomson and Pepe Ribes, skippers of yacht HUGO BOSS in the Barcelona World Race this evening lost their mast at 21.02 GMT. The yacht was reaching in moderate conditions when there was a rigging failure and the mast fell overboard and broke.
This means they will now cease racing in the Barcelona World Race 2014 -2015. The skippers and the shore team are currently evaluating how to get the boat to the nearest landfall, which is likely to be Salvador in Brazil which is a significant distance from the boat's current position.
Stewart Hosford Managing Director of Alex Thomson Racing said this evening 'After such a promising start to the 2014-2015 edition of the Barcelona World Race- this has come as a great shock. We have been preparing for this race for over a year, but unfortunately in offshore racing this type of failure sometimes happens. I now just want the skippers to get to safety and to recognise that they, and the team are very upset that this has happened, and to thank our team and our partners for their support. Alex and Pepe were doing a superb job in this race and having spoken to both of them - they are devastated that this rig failure has ended their race.'
Alex Thomson Racing are grateful to all the support from their fans and we will keep everyone updated".
