The Transatlantic project -                Mini Transat 2017

 

The aim

I want to cross the finish line of the transatlantic sailing race Mini Transat as the first German woman in October 2017. The Mini Transat is the hardest singlehanded race in the offshore-class Mini 6.50: sailing across the Atlantic Ocean, alone and without any modern communication on a 6.50 meter-long boat.

The race

85 competitors will be at the starting line at the French Atlantic coast in September 2017 to attack the 4000 nautical miles (7000 km) long trip. The first leg will lead from France to the Canary Islands, the second across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean.
