This evening – nearly seven weeks after the scheduled start of the Mini Transat in Dournenez, Benoit Marie crossed the finish line in Guadeloupe at the head of the fleet, and the reputation of the most grueling trans-oceanic race just keeps getting bigger and meaner.  Marie also does his part for yachting aesthetics, proving that the “Scow Bow” of Giancarlo Pedote isn’t necessarily the end-all/be-all of Mini design (though until yesterday when light air VMG conditions rolled in, it looked like Pedote had the win in hand). Pedote did finish second. The skipper of Prysmian crossed the finish line at Pointe-à-Pitre at 20h 41mn 30s local time is (00h 41mn 30s, GMT). He finished 2h 55mn after the leader.

 Marie, the French engineer earned the hell out of this one, and our biggest congratulations to him!  Get in on the Mini Transat thread in Ocean Racing Anarchy to talk about it.

Senior Editor Mr. Clean caught up with the young Frenchman 20 minutes after he hit the dock in Pont-A-Pitre for this excellent (if slightly muffled) Sailing Anarchy Innerview.  Check it, and have a peek at Benoit’s excellent blog, Facebook page, and Twitter to share your congrats.
