(June 24, 2013) – After the Sunday start was delayed due to extreme winds, 55 doublehanded Mini 6.50 teams today began the 700nm Mini Fastnet.

Ten hours into the race, the front-runners were already out in the Channel, with the Italian-French duo Pedote/Bourguès (Prysmian) having taken the lead in the Prototype fleet, while ‘the pair from Finistère’ Cloarec/Mahé (Lomig) is leading the Production boats. – Full report
