Many of you have contacted us with questions regarding the 1000 NM course. The 54 NM limit is no longer applicable but French governement askes its citizens not to leave the territory before June 15. Until then, we will get back to you with a solution for most of you. Italian members can already go or an alternative route we have proposed and which has been validated. For more information, contact the Classe Mini Italia secretary (

Either way, whether it be in the Mediterranean or in the Atlantic (for those who cannot participate in Les Sables race) the calendar will open with a B level race We will presently be introducing an alternative solution which will enable those of you who have not yet completed a race at C level to compete in one at B level

Please bear with us on the matter a little longer.

2020 races entries #2

A new start

The wish list replaces the order of preferences

In February many of you had prioritised races that have since been cancelled. Seeing as the calendar as it now stands is completely different from the one presented in February, we have decided to start afresh.

Given how tricky it would be asking organisers to relaunch a new synchronised registration system on such short notice, the order of preferences will be replaced with the wish list.

How will it work?

Step 1: admission lists

These first lists will be determined strictly according to the priority specified on the wish list available below. The latter must be sent before the 5th of June, upon receipt of which you will automatically receive confirmation from us. If you don’t hear anything within 3 days, please do not hesitate to contact us (

Step 2 : Entry lists

Notices of race/amendments will be published for each race asap. We will announce each update on our Facebook page (@classemini). New registration dates will then be specified for each race. To validate your spot in the admission list, you must register your entry on the date stated.

Fair winds Blaise

Grieving Classe Mini

Preparing for the 2021 Mini-Transat and striking all who met him with his enthusiasm and determination, Blaise Bernos passed away after a heart attack during a training session a week ago on the 23rd of May.

Our thoughts go out to Blaise's family as well as to the training centre of La Turballe.
