After what seems like a month waiting around for a weather window, that slightly-later-than-usual start for the Mini-Transat is definitely looking like a bad idea that will never happen again. The 90-odd minis are still stuck in port thanks to the latest in a long line of insanely nasty low pressure systems (see above), with out-of-budget sailors relying on the hospitality of the kind folks of Douarnenez to keep them housed and fed.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel though, and it looks like Tuesday morning will finally be the Minis’ day. Keep informed on the Ocean Racing Anarchy thread.
