Last month, British skipper Alex Thomson took part in the annual Artemis Challenge, a highlight of the Cowes Week calendar.
Much to our excitement, we managed to twist the arm of British actor Douglas Booth, who agreed to join Alex on-board the 60ft HUGO BOSS boat, in what would be his first ever high speed, competitive sailing race.
The event was a great success and Douglas was a fantastic honorary member of team HUGO BOSS. The team’s successful completion of the race also meant that a sum of money was donated to Kibera in Need, a charity that Douglas chose to support through the challenge.
Here are some of the photos from the day.
