it’s gotta be the sails

It’s no surprise to us that Alex Thomson is managing to stay on the tail of the leading three boats in the 2012 Vendee Globe despite sailing a boat that’s been around for half a decade; after all, at least one of our prognosticators picked him to win the thing outright.  Is he just that fast, or does he have another secret?

We grabbed Doyle Sails NZ boss Chris McMaster just before the start of the race to explain why Alex is the only sailor in the fleet not sailing with North or Incidences sails.  Chris has plenty to say about their development program, and it’s a good look at one of the one of the most important decisions a round-the-world racer makes.
