Entry opened at the Paris Boat Show last weekend – with over 50 entries within half an hour!

Since starting my campaign at the beginning of the year, I’ve been working towards the Mini Transat 2015. With my qualification miles complete and entry open, I now have a confirmed entry, starting in Douarnenez on 19th September 2015.

Both my boat and I have returned back to the UK where I will base myself over the winter, working on the boat as well as my campaign logistics and the all important money hunting! In the new year I hope to get on the water as soon as possible and build on the numbers of sailing hours.

Classe Mini AGM

During the boat show the Classe Mini AGM was held where we all voted on key issues/rule changes. Among other discussions there was a vote about the introduction of sat phones within the Classe. 100% for no sat phones!

We also elected the new committee, and I’m pleased to announce that I am now one of 11 on the board.

This year also marks the 20th year since the beginning of “Classe Mini.” We all celebrated at the annual Mini party on a barge on the Seine Saturday night!


My team is growing by the day, but I’m still looking for a title sponsor to get me to the line.
Please get in touch if you think you can help, or can give me any pointers!
All greatly appreciated.
