From one edition to the next, the success of the Vendée Globe is growing.
In 2020, 33 competitors took the start of this unique round-the-world race. There have never been so many of them! In response to the growing enthusiasm of the sailors, the number of participants has been increased to 40 skippers for the 10th edition in 2024.
In view of the event's success, the organisers have tightened the conditions to be met in order to take part. If the number of candidates meeting these requirements exceeds the quota, a selection system has been established.
