Long known for testing some of the top sailors in the world, this year’s Mini Transat and Transat Jacques Vabre have lived up to its reputation.
This November, nearly 200 boats sailed from the East Coast to the Caribbean in two rallies. One rally arrived on Tortola intact while the other had at least seven boats call the Coast Guard in distress. What do this mean for rallies, and which rally is right for you?
After facing a dismasting just off the coast of Spain during a 1,000-mile Mini Transat qualifier last April, which resulted in being airlifted, hospitalized and left him with several broken bones in his left hand, skipper Jeffrey MacFarlane has overcome the odds and is the only American to be sailing in the 2013 Mini Transat.
