The race is very different from any other offshore sailing race as it is raced :</p> <p>    &gt;  single-handedly </p> <p>    &gt;  on yachts long of only 21 feet</p> <p>    &gt;  without any assistance or interactions with the outside world</p> <p>    &gt;  without any other navigational equipment than a simple GPS.  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>My objective</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> The "Mini" is something I have always dreamt of. My objective is to be on the start line as well as to cross the finish line. This is already a difficult challenge in itself. Any satisfying ranking would be the icing on the cake.</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Why sponsor me?</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Offshore races like the Vendée Globe have always caught your attention and you've always wanted to be part of such a project?</p> <p> You've always wanted to implement a particular project that appeals to you but you never could?</p> <p> You want to sail across the Atlantic but you don't know how?</p> <p>  </p> <p> Single-handed races are not meant to be sailed alone. Join the adventure and take part in the most extreme sailing race there is!</p>
