During a successful week of RYA Sail Training for Pat, Charlie, Paul and Michal a chance encounter with Alex Thomson and his Team in Sant Feliu had the crew helping to complete the stability test for Hugo Boss 99 prior to the Barcelona World Race. Hauling down on a masthead rope handed to the students', led to the impressive photos of Hugo Boss 99 above. Sant Feliu is a few miles south of our charter base in Palamos and provides some excellent close quarter sail training for our RYA Day Skippers. For the next month, Hugo Boss 99 Alex Thomson Racing and the second Hugo Boss yacht Neutrogena are based here for some exciting speed trials. We'll try and keep up!!!!!!! Join Blue Oyster Sailing in the next few weeks, visit Sant Feliu and watch the match racing between Hugo Boss 99 and Neutrogena. Email us here for further information or call us on +34 629 881 923.
