Mini boat, great adventure

<p>Hi, my name is Hugo.</p> <p>4 years ago, I left France with a 26ft sail boat I had refitted myself. I sailed out of the Mediterranean and explored the Canary Islands.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>My dad joined me for the Atlantic crossing. It took us 31 day, or an average speed of 2.8 knots, that&#39;s the speed of a person walking...</p> <p>So I decided that I wanted to sail faster. I started joining every regatta I could, and ended up being recruted to sail around the world as First Mate on a 70ft boat on an amateur race.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>And now here I am, starting my own single handed racing project to race the Mini Transat, the biggest offshore race on the smallest boats: the Mini 6,50.</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p>

Allocation of funds

<p>This crowdfunding is made to help me get through the first few months of this campaign.</p> <p>I need to pay for the boat, the harbor, the sail, the inscription to the races, the safety equipment...etc.</p> <p>Because of the covid health crisis, some of my sponsors backed up and I need to be able to start racing to raise the attention of new sponsors. You can help me achieve this.</p> <p>Step 1 &gt;&gt; 15.000&euro; - I can keep the boat until May 2021 to keep training, racing and find a sponsor</p> <p>That&#39;s so the project doesn&#39;t disappear before being born, but if we can reach more, it always helps!</p> <p>Step 2 &gt;&gt; 25.000&euro; - I can keep the boat until September 2021</p> <p>Step 3 &gt;&gt; 30.000&euro; - I can register to all the qulification races next season</p> <p>Step 4 &gt;&gt; 40.000&euro; - I can register to the Mini Transat</p> <p>Step 5 &gt;&gt; 60.000&euro; - I can get a new set of sails to race the transat</p> <p>Step 6 &gt;&gt; 80.000&euro; - I can optimize the boat at a technical level and leverage training and coaching ressources in order to maximize the perfomance of the project</p>
