Solo round the world yachtsman Alex Thomson recently performed a daring feat on board his high-speed yacht. Dubbed the ‘mast walk‘, Thomson climbed up the 30-meter high mast of the moving vessel, taking a moment to enjoy the view before diving into the ocean below. You can see a video of the stunt embedded below. Does anyone else think the dive at the end of the video contains footage from two different jumps?

This is not the first stunt Alex has performed. Back in 2012 he completed the popular “Keel Walk” which was also featured as a Picture of the Day back on 14 February 2012.
