An Epic Solo Challenge


What is the
Mini Transat?

The Mini Transat, also known as Transat 6.50, is a solo transatlantic race held every two years. This one-of-a-kind race sees sailors from all walks of life take on the challenge of crossing the Atlantic in boats just 6.50 meters long.

Our Boat

An Exceptional Prototype

Our vessel for this adventure is a 6.50 prototype foiling boat, designed to lift off from as little as 8 knots of wind. This technological marvel, capable of reaching peak speeds of 25.4 knots, is the work of Sam Manuard, a renowned architect in the sailing world. It was co-designed by Benoit Marie, a standout figure in sailing, who brings his expertise and knowledge of the marine environment to optimize every detail of the boat.

Key Dates

The Mini Transat 2023 is structured in two challenging stages. The journey begins in September 2023, with the competitors sailing a demanding course from France to the Canary Islands. After a respite in the Canaries, the second leg of the race starts in November, as the sailors navigate their way from the Canary Islands to the idyllic setting of the Caribbean.
