As usual in his perfectly pressed Hugo Boss suit, the sailor tied the kite to the top of the IMOCA 60 mast and then, following the racing boat to windward and taking advantage of its speed, soared 85 meters into the air. At the peak of the flight, Thomson untied the kite from the boat and glided down, landing successfully on the water. Alex Thomson's #skywalk video can be viewed at this link.
