Alex Thomson has been on the video conference to APP Broadcast again... This time Alex explains his preparations for the transfer from Hugo Boss to Ecover and although the quality of this clip is low Alex is clearly distraught about the prospect of having to leave his boat. This is followed by some footage from the aft deck cam on board Hugo Boss showing Thomson in his survival suit getting into his liferaft.

NB: This video is formatted to play in Windows Media Player and is 16MB in size - therefore only suitable for those with broadband connections. Mac users can now view WMV files by downloading a suitable add on to Quicktime - we for example use Flip4Mac which works a treat. The only noticable difference is that while the clip will play out while downloading on a PC, on a Mac it must download first.
