Mira hoists the mainsail for its first trip around the world

Published the 3/03/2017

This year, Mira is sponsoring the Vendée Globe 2016–2017 race with another child from the region, the sailor Arnaud Boissières.

Since November 6, they have been sailing the seas aboard the Mie Câline, Arnaud Boissières’s single-hulled vessel that was designed by the New-Zealander Bruce Farr. While it is already Arnaud Boissières’s third time at the Vendée Globe, it is a real adventure for our little Mira!

Arnaud quickly left Madeira and the Canary Islands behind him after racing for a few days. He then crossed the equator on November 22 and celebrated the event with a few sips of Mira.
