In better times

In Bilbao prior to the start of the Velux 5 Oceans Hugo Boss Boat Captain Simon Clarke showed us around their canting keel system
As reported earlier Alex Thomson's Hugo Boss broke the top of the foil for her canting keel in the early hours this morning. In this video clip, taken in Bilbao before the start of the race, Hugo Boss' Boat Captain Simon Clarke describes how the keel system on board works and we take a good long look through the lid of the water tight box containing the keel at the top of the keel and at how its mechanics work.
