Mini -Transat La Boulangère: Axel Tréhin second at Le Marin

Axel Tréhin aboard Project Rescue Ocean, the second prototype, crossed the finish line of the second leg of the Mini-Transat La Boulangère this Friday at 05h 51 min 54 seconds UTC in Le Marin.


His race time stands at 12 days, 15 hours, 18 minutes and 54 seconds. His average speed since leaving Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is 8.83 knots (over the great circle route). He finished 12 hours, 51 minutes and 47 seconds after the first skipper, François Jambou. His combined race time over two legs equates to 21 days, 9 hours, 17 minutes and 22 seconds.


Reaction from Axel Tréhin at the finish


“I wanted to do better than in 2015, it’s a done deal”

“It was intense. I’m happy to reach the finish, to be able to get some rest and take care of myself. It’s a good result. I wanted to do better than in 2015 (4th place in the prototype category), it’s a done deal. I’m also really happy for François (Jambou) who sailed an excellent race. It really was a fine Mini Transat. Victory in the first leg was just fabulous and 2nd place overall is great too!”


“Pure joy”

“It was a fast race. Once the sea began to be more ordered and we were able to sail under large spinnaker, it was pure joy. The boat just flew along, never stopping. The first three days, I found it hard to get into the swing of things as it was a bit more bracing and conditions were more boat-breaking. I did three monumental broaches in the space of 36 hours just after the start. François (Jambou) was solid at times like that, he accepted that you had to go a bit slower.”


“I could clearly have done with my medium spinnaker”

“I lost a fair amount of ground in relation to François following the loss of my medium spinnaker, because with the large spinnaker I didn’t have a good angle. We have four headsails and I could clearly have done with it. I ended up doing a repair, which held out. That’s the name of the game. Everyone has their share of misfortunes. I don’t have much to complain about though because I’m here in Le Marin, in 2nd place. When I heard on the ranking that there are racers who still have 600 or 800 miles to go, I don’t know how they do it because I’m completely exhausted.”
