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.
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.
The weather may not have been the best, but on October 16, during a rainy, light-air day off Hawaii, U.S. sailor Bora Gulari did what no American has been able to do in over half a century—win a second International Moth World Championship.
