After 3weeks in Marocco, finalement I found the solution for Felicity transport. In Marocco everything is slow, but I really like Marocco! The small city, Asafi has a fishing port and Felicity and me stayed there 3weeks.  Two hungarian friend (good skipper, good driver) arrived with car+trailer on 13th Dec. afternoon (Friday… not a lucky day…) and without lift (crane) we put Felicity and the keel to the trailer.  Lots of people helped us! Thank you Saad (Safi Yacht Club), the fishermen and Custom, Port Police, SAR and some other offices in the Port!

Congratulation for every skipper! In my opinion the best skipper is Giancarlo Pedote! I think it was not correct at all to cancel the first etap (Douarnenez – Sada), where Giancarlo was the first and Benoit was not even in the top 5… So, Bravo Giancarlo! You are the real winner, this is not question. The ranking from the class website (www.classemini.com):

Some videos about my jury rig sailing in the MiniTransat 2013:

Sailing with jury rig in the MiniTransat 2013 ( I dismasted on 16th Nov / 200nm from Marocco cost.)

Jury Rig Sailing / Strong wind&rain / Heave-to in MiniTransat 2013 (with only 2,5 meter mast!)

The life in the dismasted Felicity (21st Nov.)/ the light wind sailing is not easy at all.

5days after dismasted / Dolphins followed me / Jury rig sailing

MiniTransat 2013 experience: After dismasted I sailed with storm jib+small main sail. I only had 2,5meter mast…

MiniTransat 2013 Jury rig sailing in strong wind/Speed:4,5knots! but the mast only 2,5m!

7days after I dismasted, 10nm from Marocco coast / Speed: 1-1,5knots…

My YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/aronmeder

On 16/11 early afternoon suddenly came a stronger wind (22 ->26 kn), and my mast was broken in that moment just under the lover spreader. I was sailing with main reef 1, without spinnaker. On the remaining 2.5 m high mast I could put only the storm jib, and partly the main sail. With this jury rig I  sailed more 200 nm to Safi, Morocco in a week (two days no wind and two stormy days). Mostly I had to steer, because the pilot hardly could managed the boat at this low speed. When I was sleeping or doing something else, I put the boat in heave to. To the Safi Port I was towed by a SAR boat on 23/11 2300UTC. Many thanks for them. It was a really hard week and a big experience.
