Probably the main mini race out of the transat is the Mini Fastnet. Raison's design did not won in 2012 neither in 2013.

Look at the mini rating and you will see that on the top are sailors that use conventional boats. If it was like you say everybody with be racing with "bath tube" bow boats

Classe Mini


2012 La Trinité – Plymouth 1er (avec Rémi Aubrun)
2013 Trophée Marie Agnès Péron, 1e

Didn't Pedote race the Scow in these races?
