The Imoca 60 Hugo Boss, led by the skippers By Alex Thomson. and Pepe Ribes, lost its mast. The incident happened during the Barcelona World Race on 14 January 2015.

The sailors were forced to abort the race and are now deciding how to get the boat ashore. The sailboat is likely to be delivered to a Brazilian port 400 nautical miles away from the accident site.

It is worth noting that until the loss of the mast, the team was leading the round-the-world non-stop race.
