Well Done Alex!

Alex Thomson and his boat Hugo Boss finished the Vendee Globe in third place this morning. Very well done! In three attempts, this is the first time that the thirty-eight year old has completed the course. Read about him here.

Aside from the race itself, I watched his press conference live this morning, held just a couple of hours after he finished, having been alone for eighty days. That's a tough thing to have to do, and I thought he was brilliant! The transcript of the conference is here.

The official Vendee Globe website is here.
