Lacking sponsors, the MOD-70-trimaran circuit has been dissolved, and the owners are now looking for other starting possibilities. Stève Ravussin SUI decided to use his 'Race for Water' in an ecological round-the-world project for the protection of the sea. We reported regularily about this project. The latest news is, that the trimaran 'Edmond de Rothschild', modified in a foiling trimaran in spring, did the first on-the-water tests. Here the report with video.

Today in Talmont at the French Atlantic Coast, the Prologue of the Transcascogne was on the program, but big waves prompted the Race Director to cancel the race, as a safe return through the small harbour entry would have been a risk for the tiny yachts. Most favorites of the Mini-Transat beginning in September, consider this regatta as a final equipment test.

Last week at the 'Mare Nostrum', Simon Koster SUI sailed, together with Justine Mettraux SUI, his first test regatta with his new Mini Prototype 'Eight Cube' with no problems in this light-wind regatta. As no other Protos participated, a performance test within the class was not possible. The mileage accumulated covers 50% of the qualification miles required to participate in the Mini-Transat. Koster plans to start at the 'Transcascogne' where most of his opponents will be present to fullfill the entry conditions.
Here his report.
