Logo Vendée le département

From the moment it began, the Vendée Globe race has belonged to the hearts of our French département. Along with the Conseil Départemental de la Vendée, the town of Les Sables d’Olonne, the company SODEBO and the Région des Pays de la Loire, some thirty large companies from the Vendée department have come on board, making the Vendée the organiser of one of the greatest races in the world.

logo sodebo partenaire

20 years ago, Sodebo took part in the legendary Vendée Globe as a shipowner alongside Thomas Coville. In 2004, they went on to become official sponsors of the race. Each edition is unique and illustrates the incredible evolution of the world of ocean racing, which has never stopped progressing. You only have to look at the evolution of the boats to understand that, with each edition, they have entered a new era, but there is still room for everyone. What we have in common are the stories of these men and women who are embarking on an adventure that is bound to change them.
