Ocean Speed Challenge mini transat 650


1 2 3 12

Tuesday morning at half past eleven local time Robert with NED602 left Lorient harbour for a training run to Luanca, Spain. As Robert is in "for some fresh air" he plans to go around near the Spanish coast and return to Lorient without enjoying the good life in Spainsmiley. The journey is the reward!

Saturday April 12th Robert Rosen Jacobson started in the Pornichet Select race. The 300nm course will take 2 to 3 days and leads along the beautiful but treacherous coast of southern Brittany.

All boats have trackers on board and can be followed real-time at this site.

The article suggests that Pip Hare finished before Robert, but that's not true. Robert was earlier classified as 14th, but that changed because a boat with a faulty transponder wasn't listed.



"Robert Rosen Jacobson, le doyen de la #MiniTransat a coupé la ligne à 13h 41m 58s UTC"

"Robert Rosen Jacobson (Postillion Hotels) crossed the line at 09h 41mn 58s local. 
His elapsed time was 26d 04h 56mn 58s."

Tonight at 19:00 UTC NED602 had only 134nm of ocean left to the finishline. Although he has a lead of 20nm on Pip Hares "Potting Shed" her speed is higher, so Robert has to be very alert tonight to secure 14th place. ETA monday afternoon (Europe) or in the morning local time at Pointe-à-Pitre. 

So keep a sharp lookout at the Mini Transat Site!
