Support boats

Without support boats, the mini-transat should simply not exist.

They will be 7 support boats, cruisers from 40 to 60 foot, crossing the ocean with the mini transat.

As the minis have only a vhf radio to communicate boat to boat, support boats job is to relay any information from the sea to the race management.  On another hand, they are under the race management orders to go and check if any competitor is in trouble.
