4 days until the Vendée Globe – are you ready?


In a matter of days the legendary Vendée-Globe’s
famous solo round-the-world race will begin! This regatta, without the
possibility of docking or receiving any outside assistance, was created in 1989
by Philippe Jeantot and takes place every four years. The GlobeSailor team will
be there!

The Vendée Globe starts
and finishes in Les Sables-d’Olonne, and the sailors travel across the Atlantic
Ocean to the Cape of Good Hope, to Antarctica, then Leewin Cape, before finally setting
off from Cape Horn to arrive back at Sables-d’Olonne. The regatta takes places
at this time of year due to the weather conditions, and it lasts from November
to February so that sailors can navigate the Southern Ocean during its
summer season.


The GlobeSailor
team will be there! Why not come and say hello; you can charter a boat from our
partners in the area and take part in this event. The Vendée Globe is not only a race but a real sailing
experience not to be missed!
