Starts The Mini-Fastnet!

Here’s what a few minutes ago Irina Gracheva wrote on his page on Facebook:

Right now the race starts La 34ème édition du Mini-Fastnet!

The race starts with a brisk galfvind, the backstay 20 to 25 knots, we cross the English channel and close-hauled we get to the Fastnet lighthouse on June 18.

Then we should expect throwing in search of the wind, and on June 19-20 will receive steady feedback racing sunset on the backstay and power jibe.

Intense beginning with the promotion directly by generalka, interesting strategies in the middle and a nice end with moderate winds.
