Closure of the Vendée Globe village

Why the start village had to be closed

Following the national confinement measures decided by the President of the French Republic as part of the fight against Covid-19, the Vendée Globe Village will be closed to the public as from Friday October 30.

A behind closed-door start show, five hours of live!

The start of the Vendée Globe will take place as planned on Sunday November 8 at 1:02 p.m. local time but behind closed doors without local spectators. It will be broadcast live on vendeeglobe.org and on many television channels.
