For the very first time, skipper Alex Thomson and the HUGO BOSS boat have arrived together in sunny Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Following a 12 day long delivery from Antigua where HUGO BOSS was berthed over the Christmas and New Year period the crew arrived in Rio to a warm reception from Brazilian fans.

Over the coming days, Alex and the crew will welcome onboard special guests of long-standing partner HUGO BOSS, together with members of the Brazilian media. The tour marks one of the final opportunities for guests to sail onboard the teams current racing yacht before the brand new HUGO BOSS boat launches later this year.

One of the first guests to be welcomed onboard in Rio was legendary Brazilian Olympic and Ocean Race sailor Torben Grael (above), who received his first tour of HUGO BOSS at the beautiful Marina da Gloria.

Next stop for HUGO BOSS and the ATR crew..Cozumel, Mexico!
