Alex Thomson Header 2Join us at the Royal London Yacht Club on Friday 14th July for a very special evening with Alex Thomson, the fastest Brit to sail singlehanded non-stop around the world.

Get your Cowes Classics Week regatta off to a very special start with a rare opportunity to hear first-hand from Alex about his incredible Vendee Globe achievement. All you need do is arrive in Cowes a little early and book your supper for just £25 per person.

Alex is one of the worlds most talented offshore yachtsmen, breaking multiple records and building a reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting sporting talents. The youngest skipper ever to win a round the world yacht race, Alex also holds the British solo, unassisted round the world record, which he set earlier this year when successfully completing the Vendee Globe, finishing in second place despite losing his starboard foil in the Atlantic Ocean. Alex’s next challenge is to build a successful campaign to win the 2020 Vendee Globe.

The Evening with Alex starts at 19:00 for a 2 course evening meal served at 19:30 in The London Room and Garden Marquee.

As this is a Royal London Yacht Club evening, you should book before the event by either emailing the Club Secretary on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or calling 01983 299 727. Payments can be made over the phone.

Oh and for those who have yet to enter the regatta, we are now only 20 days away and it would be most helpful to the organising team to have your registration earlier rather than last minute!
