Discovered by chance by some friends on a kayaking trip, towering over the wreck of Hugo Boss, Alex Thompson’s Open 60. (the very unfortunate Alex Thompson, fresh from dropping out and risking shipwreck at the 2015 Transat Jacques Vabre) which wrecked in 2006 1,000 miles off the coast of South Africa during the Velux 5 Oceans world tour. Before reaching the Chilean coast, the wreck was transported a full 20,000 miles, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
