Mini Transat: Yes, They Are Tres Tough…
The Mini Transat fleet is at sea, racing to the Canaries, and it has been rough going. Irishman Cian McCarthy has alrerady been dismasted, and there is lots of fast downwind work going on. The official website is French only, but even if you don’t parlez you can get the positions and scan some very cool photos. For English-language updates, follow Englishman Nick Bubb. Bubb killed at the start, owning the pin while the rest of the fleet banged around at the committee boat.
Bubb has since faded to mid-fleet, but at least he was kind enough to post a very cool Mini Transat preview video. Watch it here.
English, French, it doesn’t matter. When it comes to the Mini Transat the pictures tell it all.
