Mini 650 – Mini-Transat – La Rochelle FRA – Leg 1 – Start today 09.30h UTC

The 87 solo skippers of the Mini-Transat have been forced to wait during two weeks for a favorable weather window avoiding the heavy storm fronts passing over the Bay of Biscay. Today at 09.30 UTC, the start of leg one direction Canaries will finally be given. Light to moderate winds have been announced for the coming two days, when another depression with northerly winds will reach the fleet providing for a fast downwind race. —– The preview. —– As usual, the race can be followed over GPS tracking.
