The Vendée Globe e-series

The Vendée Globe e-series is a simulation of the mythical round-the-world sailing race in 3 legs, with a departure from Vendée, a descent of the Atlantic, passing the 3 mythical capes before returning to Les Sables d'Olonne, the race's home port.  

The course is faithful to the official route of the Vendée Globe and is divided into three stages: 

  • 2021 - Vendée Globe Atlantic eSeries: from Sables d'Olonne to the Cape of Good Hope 
  • 2022 - Vendée Globe Antarctic eSeries: from the Cape of Good Hope to Cape Horn 
  • 2023 - Vendée Globe Atlantic Wayback eSeries: from Cape Horn to Sables d'Olonne
