A story to be written

“My goal by participating in the Mini-Transat is to become a better sailor, to get into offshore racing and to learn more and more. Since the start of my project, I’ve been amazed by the number of problems I’ve encountered, from the most basic to the more significant, especially in terms of funding. However, I’ve always found a way to sort these issues out, which is a source of great personal triumph.” Thanks to his perseverance and his unfailing willpower, Michal Adam Weselak will indeed be at the start of the Mini-Transat La Boulangère.

The Polish sailor has hand-built his own prototype from a bare Etienne Bertrand design hull. “My main aim was to create a clean and simple boat,” he explains. “The prototype spirit really appeals to me as I’m learning a massive amount. There’s a lot to do on deck with these boats. My Mini is new, she doesn’t yet have a long history, but I’m working on setting that straight!”
