Marc Claramunt (657 – Abicena), 45th production boat skipper : “It’s good to arrive in La Palma”
Marc Claramunt was the 45th production boat skipper to cross the finish line of the first leg of the 23rd edition of the Mini Transat EuroChef this Saturday 9 October at 20h22's (UTC). In so doing, the skipper of ABICENA took 12 days 6 hours 52 minutes to complete the 1,350-mile course between Les Sables d’Olonne and Santa Cruz de La Palma.
It’s great to have made the finish. We stopped off in the meantime, but it’s good to arrive in La Palma after all these days of sailing. It was strange to go into port and all the rest of it, but it was another experience. For some people, it was important that the organisation asked us to stop racing. I had a few technical issues, but I managed to fix them. I have time now to ensure I have a safe passage in the second leg.
