The German sailor Lina Rixgens could be the first german woman who will cross the finish line of the world famous Mini Transat regatta across the Atlantic Ocean in a 6.50 m sailing boat. 85 competitors will be at the starting line at the French Atlantic coast in September 2017 to attack the 4000 nautical miles (7000 km) long trip. The first leg will lead from France to the Canary Islands, the second across the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean.
I joined Lina during her final training session in La Rochelle to photograph and film her campaign for her sponsors: the alnamic AG and One Sails. More Information to her project you can find here.
