Thirty-two years after the creation of the race, the 17th edition of the Charente Maritime Bahia Transat 6,50 will start on sunday the 13th of september 2009 off La Charente-Maritime.
Ex "Mini-Transat", the Transat 6,50 Charente-Maritime / Bahia was created by the british Bob Salmon in 1977, a professional conveyor and racing amteur, in response to the debauchery of financial and technical resources ot the Transat Anglaise 1976. Year after year, the Transat 6,50 has become a major race in the calendar, without ever having renounced to the philosophy that led to its creation. Always accessible to modest budgets and amateurs, it became an unavoidable step for sailors who aspire to a career in single handed off racing. This race brought together more than 700 participants since its 1st edition as Peyron, Desjoyaux, Stamm, MacArthur, Dubois, Autissier, Lemonchois, Coville...
An identical route to 2007
The skippers will start off La Charente-Maritime (France) on september, the 13th to Funchal (Madeira Island - Portugal). The first stage of 1100 NM should be a good starting point since the skippers will cross the famous Bay of Biscay. Competitors will then head to Salvador de Bahia (Brazil) for 3100 NM of navigation with the crossing of the mythical ITCZ and the equator.
Bresil will be the final destination of the Charente Maritime Bahia Transat 6,50 2009.
