About the Transat 2016
The Transat – single-handed ocean racing at its best. Up to 3,500 miles of open water from southwest England to New York City. A challenge dominated by the progression of low pressure systems sweeping across the north Atlantic that produce the headwinds that define this classic race.
To start with the fastest time was in the order of 40 days. Now the world’s top solo sailors in the world’s fastest boats can make the same passage in as little as 8 days. After skipping an edition four years ago, The Transat is back with up to 40 boats in four classes expected on the start line off Plymouth on May 2nd 2016.
