On May 19 at 20d 12h 38min, after 20 days since the start of The Transat CIC, Clarisse Crémer finally crossed the finish line of this legendary race.

Despite a technical stopover in the Azores to repair her boat in the middle of the race, Clarisse successfully completed this Atlantic crossing. This race is a significant milestone for Clarisse as she aims to qualify for the next Vendée Globe in 2024.

She adds 2,950 miles to her tally, supporting her qualification for the Vendée Globe. These miles earned during this event will count towards her "race for miles" to secure a spot on the starting line of the solo round-the-world race.
