Mini Transat iväg

Idag kom man till sist iväg i perfekt väder. Mini Transat med nästan 90 båtar kör 1 100 distans Fort-Boyard och Madeira och 3.100 distans mellan Madeira och Salvador de Bahia = 4.200 totalt.

Good start! At 12h38, the race?s comity liberated the 89 protagonists of the Transat 6,50 Charente-Maritime/Bahia facing a North wind (15 knots). It is with a reef in the main sail that the participants ridded up – facing the wind ? to reach the degagement buoy in the axe of the channel of La Rochelle. The skippers are for sure ready to fight and that is a compact fleet that rushed at the start line. Less than 25 minutes later, the young (23 years old) Adrien Hardy (Brossard) went round the buoy, followed by another youngster Thomas Ruyant (Faber), then Xavier Haize (Fidelia Assistance) and Matthieu Cassanas (Ville de Balaruc les Bains)?
