Mini-Transat la Boulangere - ETA Tues 15:00 UTC

The Mini-Transat la Boulangere front runners are expected to make landfall in Martinique on Tuesday. ETA for Ian Lipinski, Tuesday 14 Nov at around 15:00 UTCIan Lipinski -

As Ian Lipinski ( has 167 nm at 23:00 Monday to go, it would seem that the firm favourite of this 2017 edition of the Mini-Transat La Boulangère has the race in the bag.

Barring incident, there is virtually no hope now of Jörg Riechers (Lilienthal) and Simon Koster (Eight Cube Sersa) catching up with the undisputed leader of this race.

In the production boat category, Erwan Le Draoulec (Emile Henry), still as quick as ever, is stretching away at the front of the fleet.

However, the situation is more complicated behind Le Draoulec. Tanguy Bouroullec (Kerhis-Cerfrance) has moved ahead of Clarisse Crémer (TBS), with Benoit Sineau (Cachaca II) also challenging for the third podium place.
