The Classe Mini brings together racing monohulls (prototypes or standard) whose length does not exceed 6.50 meters. Since the summer 2020, Basile Bourgnon is at the helm of a Classe Mini sailboat flying the Edenred colors, 'little brother' of the Class40 category in which he had completed the Transat Jacques Vabre alongside Emmanuel Le Roch. The aim of the young and ambitious skipper: a busy racing program to gain as much experience as possible.
"The Edenred Mini 6.50 is what we call a scow. Its wider hull and rounded bow reduce the submerged surface of the boat's hull in the water. We gain power and speed, especially downwind. The boat surfs best by going over waves rather than through the wave. It almost feels like he's flying on water!"
