There is no limit to the enthusiasm for the Vendée Globe and many visitors want to leave with a souvenir. This year, the big hit is the Vendée Globe sardine box. « Clients buy them ten by ten », explains Sandrine Le Grand, manager of the Comptoir de la Mer store. The price (2.39€) of this local - made in St Gilles Croix de Vie - is very attractive too for gourmets. Other Vendée Globe products available include witer coats and coffee mugs that should match everybody's tastes and needs.
