The fleet of contestants of the 2015 Mini Transat arrived last november in Guadeloupe (French Caribbean). Challenging weather conditions enhanced the suspense until the end. Yann Claverie, our skipper, couldn't agree more!
 

In the first part of the race, between Douarnenez (Brittany - France) and Lanzarote (Canaries - Spain), Yann ranked 14th, achieving its target of being in the first third. Shortly after this stopover at Lanzarote, Yann's generator broke down. He decided to stop for repairing it, supported by anonymous and generous inhabitants of Gran Canaria. 60h later, Yann was finally leaving the Spanish island, heading west! Keeping his fighting spirit, he managed to see the land of Guadeloupe on November 20th, after 20 days 07 hours and 34 minutes. His outstanding seamanship skills were as such confirmed by a very honorable 32nd position out of 46.

SANDEN Environmental Solutions is very proud of Yann's achievement and mindset, in line with our company values.
