Mini-Transat la Boulangere - New production boat leader

Between the islands of Santo Antao and San Vicente, the Mini-Transat la Boulangere competitors have to make their way along a channel spanning seven miles wide.Erwan Le Draoulec (495 Emile Henry) -

With three rivals in hot pursuit, Jörg Riechers (Lilienthal), Romain Bolzinger (Spicee.com) and Charlotte Méry (Optigestion – Femmes de Bretagne).

In the production boat category, there is a new leader, Erwan Le Draoulec (Emile Henry) with Tanguy Bouroullec (Kerhis-Cerfrance) now dropping to second and Clarisse Crémer (TBS) in third.

A large part of the fleet was likely to negotiate the channel under the cover of darkness.

For them, it’ll be important to be particularly vigilant to the last minute wind shifts.

Fortunately, the full moon should have made the exercise a little less harrowing than in the pitch black.
