A Mini for his 20th birthday

At 20 years of age, Pierre Casenave-Péré is preparing to make a childhood dream come true: to participate in the Mini-Transat. After a few years of dinghy sailing and a spot of cruising, he’s decided to take a big leap. “For me, it’s an opportunity to discover offshore racing before I finish my studies and enter the job market”. Living in New York, Pierre bought his boat in September 2018 without seeing her. They first got to know each other in November 2018, during the weekend of the Route du Rhum start. “She’s an Argo! Everyone agrees that the Argos are the finest production boats!”

For his first solo transatlantic passage, Pierre doesn’t fear the solitude, but he will still be taking music and a book with him. “You never really get bored at sea, but it’s a lot nicer with a good book! My choice will be Bernard Moitessier’s La Longue Route (The long way)!”
