What a fantastic evening at Hardway Sailing Club In Gosport last night where Alex gave a talk as part of a fundraiser for our chosen charity @oarsomechance
A fantastic turnout where everyone got involved in the charity auction, which included some amazing signed bags created from old HUGO BOSS sails which were handmade by the Oarsome Chance team!

Here’s a little update in pictures for you all, HUGO BOSS is looking sharp!!! 🔥
Since she was lifted into the shed in mid December for refit, the team have completely stripped the boat.
Currently the bottom of the boat has been antifouled while the hull, topside, deck, cockpit & coach roof have all been primed, sanded and awaiting the top coat!
In March she’ll be as good as new!! #alexthomsonracing#thisisboss#sailing#refit
