The Mini-Transat doesn’t give a shit about the worldwide recession, Sarin gas in Syria, or a France divided by politics and money.  84 boats are entered – the maximum allowed – with 31 of the competitors decidedly un-Francais.  And this is no ‘enter and if you have to pull out, do it at the last minute’ registration process; there are a dozen keen racers on the waiting list for those that don’t have their shit together come 40-odd days from today, when they set off for leg one.  Our suggestion for die-hard fans of sailing with a few weeks of vacation?  After the Little AC ends in Falmouth, UK, jump in the ferry to Dournenez for an event that’s always loaded with Anarchy and full of some of the zaniest and most talented characters in the sport.

It’s not all roses though; bad stuff still happens to good boats, and RG650 builder Bret Perry recently shared some nasty news about a shipping mishap to one of his new Series boats.

Hull 7 of the RG650 Series Mini, destined for Valencia, will unfortunately never touch the water! Destroyed in seconds…This happened a while ago and we have been keeping it quiet to let the shock subside, but I can’t hold it in  any longer.  Check the photos and see for yourself the damage done when the containerized boat landed on its roof from 60 feet in the air.  R.I.P  no. 845; sorry I never got to meet you. You will always be a part of the RG650 legend…
