Unfortunately, Andrea has hit a few hondreds of miles before finish Guadeloupe an Unidentified Underwater floating Subject. This was after the non-stop disaster Transat 2013 race Europe-Guadeloupe of nearly 4 weeks of day and night non-stop solo racing over the Atlantic under horrible conditions. Andrea het to leave his dammaged boat behind. As Mini Transats are unsinkable, the boat will have turned its circles around over the Atlantic taken by  the current/gulf current.

GER 682 was the first Mini Transat I saw in 2009 1,5 mile in front of me while appoaching the coast of Brasil in the early morning of October 25, 2009. Andreas and I had a fight in front of the finish in Salvador de Bahia that day.
