Sailor of the Month CLARISSE CREMER (FRA)
Cremer is one of 10 women soloists entered in this year’s Mini Transat – a new record for the race. And her entry is one to track carefully, on the water and in terms of the disproportionate impact this former rugby player (sic) is making online and in the media with perhaps the most intense and well-polished (self) promotional campaign we have seen since François Gabart’s Vendée ‘operation’ in 2012. Great for the sport is Clarisse
Sailor of the month ALAIN ROURA (SUI)
No fuss, no big drama, at age 24 Roura was the youngest skipper to compete in – and finish – the last Vendée Globe, crossing the line in 12th place. And it’s an impressive backstory: brought up in Geneva, by the age of 13 Roura had left school and begun work at a boatyard in South America, going on to race the Mini Transat – 11th overall at the age of 20 – and then the Route du Rhum, followed by a two-handed transat. A fast seaman who takes care of his boat
