Among those lining up in 2017, there are three mixed doubles: Tanguy de Lamotte and Samantha Davies on Initiatives-Cœur, who already took part in 2015. Louis Burton and Servane Escoffier on their foiler Bureau Vallée 2 (ex-Banque Populaire, winner of the last Vendée Globe) and finally, Isabelle Joschke and Pierre Brasseur on Generali. 

Some big names will be competing with in particular Jean-Pierre Dick and Yann Eliès on StMichel-Virbac, Paul Meilhat and Gwénolé Gahinet on SMA, Kito de Pavant and Yannick Bestaven on Bastide Otio, Fabrice Amedeo and the Italian, Giancarlo Pedote on Newrest-Brioche Pasquier, and finally Morgan Lagravière and Roland Jourdain, who want to take advantage of this transatlantic race to atempt to find a new sponsor for the former Safran.
