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.

In October 2009 Ellen MacArthur, one of the greatest sportswomen in the world, announced her retirement from competitive sailing. Many were in disbelief. How could the woman who had fought so hard to set so many records give up racing? But Ellen had found an even tougher challenge than sailing solo round the globe. Now Ellen is ready to write about her incredible last ten years, including the trip which changed her life. She speaks honestly about the trials of fame after coming second in the Vendee Globe in 2001; about her frustrations in missing the record for the West-East transatlantic crossing by just 75 minutes in 2004; the dramatic capsize and dismasting she experienced prior to her record attempt, and then the ultimate triumph of her spectacular, record-breaking, non-stop solo circumnavigation of the globe in 2004-5, sharing every painful and exciting moment of her 71 days alone at sea. And of course she tells of the fateful trip to South Georgia in 2005 which caused her to decide to leave competitive sailing behind for ever and focus all her ambition and energy towards a new and much bigger race . . . Ellen's searingly honest story is a story of triumph over incredible adversity and will inspire others to follow in this remarkable woman's wake.
