Awesome pics of Alex Thomson training for Vendee Globe

Too cool. This one pic is terrifying! Is that a sailboat or a submarine?!

Re: Awesome pics of Alex Thomson training for Vendee Globe

The keel walk was cool, but it was a gimmick compared to the pics of him putting that 60 through her paces in some big waves. Of course I posted this thread two months ago with no replies, now that the race is in full swing the pics in the link I posted have been superseded by loads of fresh pics and video. Crazy race...
