Hugo Dhallenne is certainly one of the sailors to watch in this 23rd edition of the Mini Transat! And for good reason, having seriously packed a punch from his very first season on the circuit in 2019, which notably saw him secure podium places in the Plastimo Mini Lorient and then the Transgascogne, he has gone on to win three of the four races he’s competed in this year.

His status as favourite? “It doesn’t bother me, it’s not something I worry about. I always keep in mind the fact that sailing is a mechanical sport and that it can all grind to a halt very quickly, as soon as you cross the Bay of Biscay or make your way down the Portuguese coast. I prefer to set sail with a light heart without putting any pressure on myself, comments the sailor from Saint Malo, whose nautical CV is already replete. His list of credits includes a world champion title in Formula 18 obtained in a long-distance rally in 2018 with Benoît Champannac, five Tour de France à la Voile participations with one victory in the amateur category on the M34 Normandy-Acerel in 2014, as well as two transpacific passages and countless miles racked up on the waters between France, Greenland and Antarctica.

For me today, participating in the Mini Transat is my first foray into singlehanded offshore racing”, points out the skipper of the Maxi 6.50 who is flying the flag of the Yacht Club de Saint-Lunaire and is also an electronics specialist on race boats. His goal: “to get to the other side as quickly as I can, with as few people in front of me as possible, and without having had to get the toolbox out every day.
