Alex Thomson

Skipper / Director


Alex Thomson is one of the world’s leading ocean sailors. He has spent almost half his life striving to win the toughest sporting event on the planet, the Vendee Globe: 75 days and nights of circumnavigation alone in a yacht racing across the world’s most perilous seas. He has sailed more than 400,000 nautical miles, and attempted ten round-world voyages. His second place in the 2017 Vendee matched Dame Ellen MacArthur as the best ever placing by a British sailor. Following the 2020 Vendee Globe Alex decided to focus on his young family and on managing campaigns for other high performance teams. His company 5 West Ltd manage two IMOCA's campaigns - L'OCCITANE en Provence Sailing Team with Skipper Clarisse Cremer and Canada Ocean Racing skippered by Scott Shawyer.
