Single-handed sailor Lizzy Foreman has completed the final 2,770nm leg of the Mini Transat Iles de Guadeloupe.
The 25-year-old reached Guadeloupe on 31 October in Hudson Wight, her 10-year-old 6.5m Series Mini boat.
The sailor took 19 days (2,770 nm) to reach Guadeloupe on Leg 2. It followed a nine day and 13 hours (1250 nm) race from France to Lanzarote on Leg 1.
Lizzy finished in 32nd place overall, the first female sailor to cross the finishing line and first Brit overall in the Series class.
The Mini Transat is a solo transatlantic yacht race covering over 4000 miles. The race runs biennially, giving sailors time to qualify; through completing a 1,000 nm solo passage and competing in 1,000 nm of Classe Mini races.
The 2015 edition started in October 2015 in Douarnenez (France), with a stopover in Lanzarote (the Canary Islands) before the finishing line in Guadeloupe in the Caribbean.
There are no prizes for winning the race and, due to its harsh nature, the class is a great training ground for the larger ocean-going yachts, such as the Open 60 which is raced in the Vendée Globe.
The great offshore sailors Michel Desjoyeaux, Ellen MacArthur, Brian Thompson, Sam Davies and Tanguy de Lamotte, all Vendée Globe sailors, honed their skills in the Mini fleet.
