The pleasure of the crossing

For his first participation in the Mini-Transat La Boulangère, Christophe Brière has selected a Nacira 6.50, number 755, which is special because she’s completed all her transatlantic passages, but that’s not all. “She got my childhood friends across to the other side, Pierre-François Dargnies and Armand de Jacquelot. I thought it would make a nice story for me to try to do the same with this boat.”

And though his focus in taking the start of the Mini-Transat is having fun and getting across to the other side of the Atlantic, Christophe has every intention of giving his all in the race to the finish. “I’m going to try not to come last, which would be a good thing even if it’s not my priority”.
