Miranda said upon finishing the race « I left without really knowing the boat at all. I’d only had two short deliveries! One across the channel and the second from Caen to Douarnenez. This 2000 mile race was a fantastic way to discover her. We had everything in terms of conditions, it was really good but I still have a lot to learn, particularly with regard to the range of each sail. I’d already a good amount of experience on IMOCA, but that was almost last century! I’m glad to have arrived. The goal was to finish the race and we’ve achieved that. Overall I enjoyed myself. At one point three birds joined my crew, at another the autopilot misbehaved causing the loss of my tea! At that moment I thought I deserved the Vendee Globe! »
