85100 LES SABLES D'OLONNE

An old world tour, solo, without stopover, without assistance with the same means as in 1968 !

A unique challenge, pure and hard: the return to the golden age of sailing alone. A tribute to the traditional values ​​of sailing.

22 skippers in solo.
10 nationalities
30,000 miles.

The sailors will follow a very simple route: the boats will leave the port of Sables d'Olonne to go around the world by the five great capes and join the Sables d'Olonne again, without stopover.

The start is preceded by a two week Race Village in the Vendée Globe Marina to celebrate the history of singlehanded sailing.
