Frédéric Denis, from La Trinité in Brittany, France, has won the Mini Transat

As Ireland's Thomas Dolan continues to make his way to the finish line, Frédéric Denis, from La Trinité in Brittany, France, has won the Mini Transat after crossing the finish line off the Iles de Guadeloupe first, at 09:12:30 GMT (05:12:30 local time in Point-à-Pitre) on Friday November 13.

After his third place finish on the first stage to Lanzarote, Denis was six minutes behind Axel Tréhin (Aleph Racing), but with his closest rivals trailing by over 50 miles, he was a clear winner as he crossed the finish line in Guadeloupe.

Denis’s average boat speed over the theoretical distance was 9.04 knots. Nautipark covered an actual total of 3,230.79 miles on the water, more than 455 miles more than the theoretical distance, and sailed at an average 10.52 knots.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
