The first race of the season, a tricky route where strategy will be key, lots of tidal gates and islands rounding, so many chances to gain spots… or lose some.
Mini en Mai
One of the iconic races of the Mini 6.50 race circuit. My participation in this race last season is a mixed bag of terrible mistakes and good calls (video here) so let’s try to do better this time (came 9th in 2020).
Mixing offshore and coastal strategy, the Trophée MAP is a beautiful race that leaves you no time to rest. It’s also the last race before the Transat to score for the French Offshore racing championship, and since I finished 1st on that race last year… no pressure…
Who has not heard about the Fastnet race? Well if you haven’t it’s a bit like the 24h du Mans but for sailing. It’s also a double-handed race, the name of the co-skipper to be disclosed at a later stage.
The result of 2 years of training and preparation and many more years of dreams and expectations. It will be long and tough, but every second of the race will be important, so brace for 3 to 4 weeks of intense sailing.
