Pep Costa MT 2019

Spanish skipper Pep Costa will take the start line at the 2019 Mini Transat. With just 20 years old he is the youngest Spanish skipper to ever compete in the Mini Transat and he will be the youngest in this year’s prototype class. He will be covering over 4000 miles solo in his 6.5m carbon proto N 431! The race starts at La Rochelle (FRA) with a stop over at Las Palmas (ESP) and across the Atlantic to Martinique (FRA). It will be an epic race and it is considered one of the summits of single-handed sailing; where everything starts: skipper, boat, no external assistance, no online weather routing or sat communications. Follow and support Pep in this great challenge! You can support Pep by direct donations: https://makeachamp.com/es/pepcosta or you can benefit of a 15% discount and further donation to his campaign by purchasing at our webshop with this code: PepMT2019 .
