    Hugo Boss in the Solent today. Not enough wind for foiling unfortunately. Sorry I have no camera skills

    We have the first official video of her sailing, and a couple of very short shots from the interior:

    Edit: check out the amount of hardware at the top of the foil cases at 0:15,

    and how the rudder hinges up with its end-plate at 0:22,

    also she's fully foiling with just the main and smallest staysail.

    The ergonomics of the space look, with respect, awful.

    Reminds me of another enclosed cockpit concept that did pretty well... 9bbf0a7d60816afb0ca941fc78dd19b4.jpg

    So there is a tiller then. Early speculation was that it was autopilot only.

    Amazing how little fresh water he carries. The water maker must be very reliable.

    Do we reckon that they change the handles on the coffee grinder before the race given that he doesn't have four hands?

    Great article in the latest Yachting World, where they report on going sailing in the new Hugo Boss.
    And yes it can be steered by tiller from on deck, but designed to be driven hard from below decks
