FLASH NEWS – Beccaria first in Las Palmas, what a victory in the first leg of the Mini Transat

Wanted, sweated, sought, fought until the end. The first leg of the Mini Transat belongs to Ambrogio Beccaria on Geomag, who finishes first among the Series with a time of 8 days 19 hours 52 minutes 7 seconds, averaging 6.32 knots. The turning point came in the last 24 hours, when Ambrose moved back into the lead of the race, overtaking Felix De Navacelle, thanks to a more westerly positioning that made him hook into the new wind early. The time advantage over the rival will be about 2 hours, nothing decisive ahead of the second stage (the sum of times applies), but important for morale.

I am so happy! I didn’t think I was in the lead. Yesterday morning I did not listen to the weather and the rankings because I was sure I had lost all my leadership in the night. I thought everyone was positioned to the west, and with the wind coming from the southwest, I thought I had lost everything. Especially since I learned that Felix was close. As a result, I abstained from sleeping and eating for at least 15 hours to try to navigate as fast as possible, and I have no regrets. I doubted it completely. I told myself that it was no big deal, that if I came third it was already good. I started to have a doubt when I heard the Proto talking with the VHF, I thought it was strange. Eventually I found that all were positioned in the east. I won this first stage and it’s really cool“, these were Ambrose’s first statements after the finish line.
