The first leg of the 23rd Mini Transat EuroChef set off this Monday 27 September at 15:30 hours local time, just a tad later than planned.

The 90 sailors set sail with one reef in the mainsail, propelled along by a NW'ly breeze of between 16 and 20 knots. After rounding the windward mark, - Brieuc Lebec (914 - Velotrade) leading the way - everyone set a course for the open ocean. Right now, 1,350 miles lay ahead of them as they make for Santa-Cruz de La Palma. Game on!
