Hugo Boss Crew Transfer at Ambrose Light

As Alex Thomson sails for the starting line at Ambrose Light off New York aboard the IMOCA Open 60 Hugo Boss, his crew transfers onto New York Media Boat’s RIB running alongside at about 20 knots. Thomson is attempting to break the transatlantic record in preparation for the Vendee Globe later this year. After all three crew were in the RIB we stationed just north of the ‘A’ buoy. Simon Clarke sighting it due south and waited for Hugo Boss to cross the line, marking the time.
