Alex Thomson Returns

On Saturday 11th February 2017, Alex Thomson returned to Gosport after finishing 2nd in the 2017 Vendée Globe Race.  As he approached Gosport, he was accompanied by an armada of boats.  A number of members from the Haslar Yacht Club were out on their boats to join in the celebration for this amazing achievement.  

it was great to see him come home safely and the mayor was there with many people on the shore to welcome him home to Gosport.  Already he is planning to take part in the next Vendée Globe race.  We wish him, his family and sponsors well in their preparations.
