Proto vs Série | Mini Transat 2013 - Douarnenez / Lanzarote / Pointe-à-Pitre
Next to the Vendée Globe, this is one of the most extraordinary races to me.
Not only because one of the participants in the series class, Bert Bossyns on the Nacira 6.50 NETWERK, is a highly valued member of the Yacht Club I preside (KLYC) .

For those who understand Dutch: Bert Bossyns | Sailing Across - Bert Bossyns.
