Challenge the Vendée Globe skippers!

Virtual Regatta Prologue ENG


Since October 8 at 1PM, sailing enthusiasts have been on the virtual start line in Les Sables d'Olonne, but not by themselves, as official teams will also be there for a navigation across the Atlantic all the way to the Equator.

And this is a big first as there has never been a competition between the public and official teams on virtual oceans. Virtual yachtsmen will need their very best routing skills on equal footing and each competitor will be put to the test in real time.

It is now time to prepare for the greatest challenge in the history of virtual sailing! It is all happening today on


In the prologue of the 2012-13 edition, each virtual skipper will compete against official teams, which is the best preparation before the Vendée Globe starts on November 10!
