A new challenge for LINKERS: to help 25-year-old sailor Caroline Boule to become the first woman to win the Mini Transat race!

LINKERS is for the 3rd time embarking on the Mini Transat adventure, a solo, unassisted transatlantic race spanning 4,050 nautical miles from Sables d’Olonne to Guadaloupe.

This project embodies values that LINKERS holds dear:

gender diversity, for while the Mini Transat is a solo race the sailors compete against each other during preparatory races, some of which, like the Mini-Fastnet and the Calvados Cup, are mixed doubles events.

sharing and skills transmission, as Benoît Marie, Caroline’s co-skipper during the doubles races, is also her coach and she will benefit from his experience as winner of the 2013 Mini Transat.

a taste for risk and technological innovation, as the prototype designed by Benoît and captained by Caroline is equipped with foils that will enable it to literally fly one metre above the water even in rough seas;

sustainable development, as the boat was developed with the assistance of a yacht laboratory built using 97% reclaimed materials, notably from the aeronautic industry;

ecology, as the foils with which the boat is equipped are designed to one day be adapted to maritime transport ships to enable them to reduce their carbon footprint;

solidarity, as although there is a keen competitive spirit, it always leaves room for mutual assistance between sailors in the event of an accident.
