Alex Thomson Racing

« Alex Thomson, skipper of HUGO BOSS in the forthcoming Barcelona Race also sent his congratulations and said “The power of the MOB light is unbelievable. It is so powerful we call it the ‘Sun’ onboard Hugo Boss as at night we can see the top of our 30m mast like it is daylight – that’s equivalent to a 10 story building! It is incredibly lightweight and for a marine application having a sealed unit is a real plus. We found the indicator light useful for finding the torch when in one of the many cockpit pockets too! Being on top of your sail trim at night just got a whole lot easier!”
