This very small sailing into Porthcressa last night is a Classe Mini 6.5m Pogo 2 preparing for the 2017 Mini Transit Race from La Rochelle on Oct. 1st. This goes via Las Palmas , Gran Canaria leaving early Nov. then on to Marin in Martinique in the Caribbean. It is being sailed by a German woman, Lina Rixgens - who says " I want to cross the finish line of the transatlantic sailing race Mini Transat as the first German woman in October 2017. The Mini Transat is the hardest singlehanded race in the offshore-class Mini 6.50: sailing across the Atlantic Ocean, alone and without any modern communication on a 6.50 meter-long boat.
