To Finish First, Episode 1: No Quit
Published on February 5th, 2020
To Finish First lifts the lid on life at Alex Thomson Racing, one of the world’s most formidable sailing teams. Episode 1 offers fans a rare insight into the unpredictable and, at times, brutal world of single-handed ocean racing.
The team’s ultimate goal is to win the Vendée Globe 2020-21, the ultimate solo non-stop round the world race in the IMOCA 60. However, after christening their new boat in September 2019, Alex Thomson and co-skipper Neal McDonald had to cut the keel off after damage forced them to withdraw November 3 from the 4350nm Transat Jacque Vabre.
Now the team must get back on track to achieve its goal.
