Mini Transat

As I was expecting on the Mini Transat the 5 leading boats made it safely to Sada. The situation of neutralizing the race without a classification seems unacceptable to me. As in other races could be neutralized at a certain arbitrary point (as it happened recently with a Open60 race) and the classifications and times being the ones there. To the ones that did not manage to pass there at a given hour would be given the same time of the last that had made it.

They had at least 12 hours to find a solution. This race will be a black one on the Mini Transat history and shows that the organization is not at the level of the race.
