Pic Of The Day: Fancy Taking A Walk With This Man? Sorry, That Ship Has Sailed

Afraid of heights? This may scare you a little.

Today’s ‘Pic of the Day’ is without doubt one of our favourites this year and comes courtesy of solo round the world yachtsman, Alex Thomson.

Recently Thomson found himself 30-metres in the air on top of a mast attached to a high-speed yacht, as you do.

Thomson’s dare devil ‘mast walk‘ antics makes for one fantastic photograph.

The sailing fanatic takes a moment to enjoy the view before diving into the ocean below.


This ship has sailed…

Watch the epic stunt as it happened here:
