From 2008, Yann Riou has been the invited crew of the winning team of the Mini-Fastnet. With three different skippers and mini 650 Mini 650 #mini650 , he has won the two-handed race from Brittany to Ireland. He is the SeaSailSurfer of June

In 2008, Thomas Ruyant (winner of the Transat The Transat #thetransat #ostar 650 2009) chose him to be his co-skipper of the Mini-Fastnet. Good choice. Both men win the race with a strong lead.

In 2009, Stéphane Le Diraison invited him for the race from Douarnenez Douarnenez #Douarnenez to Fastnet rock. Back in the bay of Douarnenez Douarnenez #Douarnenez in a three boat race, the duo made the good choici in the north of the bay to be first on the line.

This year, it was to Guillaume Le Brec to have the change to get Yann Riou onboard. And they won.

With three consecutive wins, Yann Riou who has done twice the Mini-Transat Mini-Transat #MiniTransat and who is working for the Groupama Team, will be the man to have onboard in 2011 if you want to win the Mini-Fastnet.
