There’s a new sailing video that has recently been posted on YouTube and it might be of interest to the membership. It’s a video of a “mast walk” where Alex Thompson walks up the 30 m high mast of a 60ft yacht while it’s sailing on an extreme heel and then dives off the top. It’s pretty spectacular! He also happens to be wearing a suit for the stunt – it’s an advert for Hugo Boss.
It’s actually a sequel of sorts to a video from two years ago where the same guy did a ‘keel walk’ on the same boat, again while it was sailing.
