Alex Thomson notifies a rudder damage on his Hugo Boss boat

At approximately 19:00 UTC last evening Alex Thomson notified his technical team on shore of damage to the starboard rudder of his Hugo Boss boat. The team immediately advised Thomson to disconnect the rudder to regain steerage. He now has control of Hugo Boss with one rudder, and is safe and in no danger onboard. The team is working to assess the extent of the damage. A further update will be released this Saturday 28th November.
