New impulse for the Mini Base of the Nautical Club of L'Escala, created in 2007 aiming at becoming a training and assistance center for the skippers of the Mini Class. It is the creation of the Mini Med, second race for the class, organized by the Club Nautical L'Escala, following the great welcome the first race, the Mini Empúries has been given.

Inheriting the double handed crews and their will to unite the different Mediterranean regions, this event appears with force in the national and European panorama of regattas of the class. Indeed, it is part of the 2009 Mini circuit as it is qualificative for the Mini-Transat, the mythical race across the Atlantic that has forged some of the best sailors in the world.

With this race, competitors will have the possibility to cumulate 500 NM to add 500 nautical miles sailing from the gironina locality of L'Escala to the Barcelonian municipality of Sitges (Port d'Aiguadolç), happening through Menorca, Majorca and Ibiza.

A good excuse to be testimony of one of the events of the season and to visit L'Escala and the Alt Empordà, territories of tramontana, but also of landscapes that have inspired a lot of painters and writers, good meals and excellent wines.
