tuxedo-collage-boatThe exploits of Alex Thomson (who recently walked in a suit and tie on the mast of his IMOCA 60 Hugo Boss leaning almost 90 degrees, and two years ago had made headlines for his “keel walk”) have made an uproar.

Danes Jonas Warrer (gold in Beijing in 2008 in the 49er) and Peter Lang (bronze in London, also in the 49er) are the stars of this video titled “Another Day at the 49er Office,” where the two get ready, complete with suit and tie, to go to work.

The Argentine architect opted for a vertical bow, double rudders, a flat and wide stern, and a very pronounced edge on the hull. The sail plan includes a very set back mast, offset by an advanced bulb that allows for a very powerful genoa that veers with ease. The deck has easy maneuvering and, thanks to quartered spreaders, the mast is backstay-free. A choice that led to the creation of a large mainsail, the staysail of which is positioned at the extreme stern of the boat.
