Last confrontation before the Vendée Globe

While some of the skippers have already reached Uncle Sam's country, the excitement is at its peak: the last transatlantic race is generating a lot of sporting interest. The sailors are embarking on this final test before the Vendée Globe to put their boats through their paces, while seeking to assert their superiority over their rivals. It is also the last chance for some to qualify and be among the 40 selected for the 10th edition of the Everest of the Seas.

A race to follow on the Vendée Globe social networks

The Vendée Globe's ‘little American sister’, this transatlantic race will be taking over the Vendée Globe's digital platforms from today until the finish: the Vendée Globe's social networks: Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Tiktok and X are going American!
