Paris, Wednesday 3rd February 2016

A top class sporting line-up with no fewer than nine nations taking part, Race HQ based at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, multi-screen international TV broadcasts, innovative digital and media arrangements… The eighth Vendée Globe already looks like being an exceptional vintage and confirms its place as the world’s leading ocean race and a major sporting event. Another new feature for this edition, henceforth a country will be the guest of honour. This time, it will be Brazil.

On Wednesday 3rd February in Paris, Yves Auvinet, President of the Vendée Council and SAEM Vendée, accompanied by Bruno Retailleau, President of the Pays de la Loire Region, Patricia Brochard, co-President of the Sodebo company and Lionel Pariset, commissioner in charge of maritime affairs for the town of Les Sables d’Olonne, presented the new features for the eighth Vendée Globe and the line-up of skippers for this 2016-2017 race.
