The Vendée Globe yacht Hugo Boss sailed by Alex Thomson was hit by a fishing boat while sailing in France.  Hugo Boss had a mainsail up and was fully visible with navigation lights, trim lights and a strobe light on when the boat struck her forward of the cap shroud on the starboard side severely holing her and bringing the mast tumbling down.

The mast and sails were cut away and the boat was motored into Les Sables d’Olonnes where repairs to the hole in the hull were repaired.

Hugo Boss is now back in the water, undergoing sea trials before the start of the Vendée Globe.
