News New ICE sails for Hugo Boss

09 Mar 2014

Building on Doyle Sails NZ’s long standing relationship with Alex Thomson racing, the NZ loft has built a full new set of Doyle Stratis ICE sails for Hugo Boss. “We are very excited to be associated with Alex Thomson Racing for the next four years,” said Chris McMaster, MD of Doyle Sails NZ. “They have an extensive racing programme which could involve up to four boats.” The first sails will dispatch this month, with another set to follow in the coming months. Following Thomson’s podium finish in the Vendee Glob 2012/13, Thomson and his team are now building to the Barcelona World Race (starting 31 December 2014), and the next Vendee Globe in 2016. Masters of the PR campaign, Thomson and his team also just trumped their 2012 'Keel Walk' stunt with a new 'Mast Walk' stunt that has gone viral around the world - check out that video here.
