It’s Monday and it’s under a sunny sky that most of the 77 Minis registered for the 17th Marie-Agnès Péron Trophy can be found in Tréboul port whilst waiting for safety checks prior to departure on Thursday. The volunteers and organisers have happily set everything up this morning and everybody agrees that the long awaited summer has finally arrived on the tip of Finistère ! But will it last .. ?
The weather situation is quite complex for the second half of the week. And it risks deteriorating from Wednesday with a depression coming up rapidly from Spain to the Bay of Biscay then Ireland. So the wind might be light for the start of the race whilst a second depression, stormy, forms and generates a strong wind over the eastern area from Friday evening. Jean-Jacques Quéré, our weather specialist, remarks that the situation can of course evolve and will be re-assessed for the pre-race briefing planned for Wednesday 18:00 via videoconference.
