We’re all set for the start of the Pornichet Select!

Aquafolia sunscreen is onboard, UK Halsey sails are packed and ready, Cousin Trestec lines are spliced and loaded on the Wichard runners and our ABYC flag is flying proudly at the dock ready to head out in the morning.  The race starts tomorrow April 20, 2013 at 1300 French time (1200 UTC).  It’s a 300 nautical mile solo race encircling Ile De Groix and Les Sables D’Olonne’s famous Nouche Sud mark where all the Vendee Globe boats finish.  This is one of my two qualifying races left to do to be fully qualified for the Mini Transat Race.  Follow this race on the Select’s website here….See you at the finish line!
