Depuis sa création, près de 1 000 marins ont pris le départ de la Mini-Transat qui fête cette année ses 40 ans. Une belle occasion de célébrer cette course au large atypique... La Mini-Transat n’est pas une course comme les autres. Peut-être parce qu’avec 6,50 mètres (la taille d’une camionnette !), les bateaux y sont les plus petits de toutes les courses au large. Peut-être aussi parce que, parmi les candidats, on trouve de tout : des jeunes, des moins jeunes, des amateurs, des presque néophytes ou de grands marins. Ainsi, pour certains, les plus connus (Daniel Gilard, Jean-Luc Van Den Heede, Bruno et Loïck Peyron, Yves Parlier, Isabelle Autissier, Laurent et Yvan Bourgnon, Roland Jourdain, Catherine Chabaud, Lionel Lemonchois, Michel Desjoyaux, Thierry Dubois, Ellen Mac Arthur, Thomas Coville, Tanguy Delamotte, Arnaud Boissière, Thomas Ruyant...), la Mini a été un tremplin vers une carrière professionnelle sur les océans. Mais pour la majorité, elle a été une parenthèse improbable dans leur vie, un espace ouvert sur un rêve réalisé, une aventure à achever pour se sentir vivant et serein. À l’occasion du départ de la 20e Mini-Transat, qui sera donné le 1er octobre 2017 de La Rochelle pour une arrivée prévue quelques semaines plus tard en Martinique, Patrick Benoiton retrace l’histoire passionnante de cette belle aventure. Un texte riche de nombreux témoignages, qui rend hommage à la dimension humaine de cette course décidément à part.

Before The Perfect Storm, before In the Heart of the Sea, Steven Callahan’s dramatic tale of survival at sea was on the New York Times bestseller list for more than thirty-six weeks. In some ways the model for the new wave of adventure books, Adrift is an undeniable seafaring classic, a riveting firsthand account by the only man known to have survived more than a month alone at sea, fighting for his life in an inflatable raft after his small sloop capsized only six days out. “Utterly absorbing” (Newsweek), Adrift is a must-have for any adventure library.
