For the ones that don't know this is one of the most famous races from the mini-racers circuit and from the ones that don't know what a mini racer is, well, it is just that, about the smallest ocean racer there is, with just 6.5m. The races are normally solo (like this one) and have two categories: prototypes and series boats. This one starts at Sables d'Olonne and (France) go to Açores and back to Les Sables. Quite a race ;-)
This year the Italian Giancarlo Pedote, after having losing, with a lot of bad luck, the last Transat, seems that will not give a change to anynobody and with his odd looking but effective bath tube bow racer, is well ahead.
