Start of the Vendée Globe
The 2012-2013 Vendée Globe will start on November 10, 2012 at 1pm in Les Sables d’Olonne.
The entrants list is growing longer and, as of today, 19 skippers have confirmed they will be on the start line. The upcoming seventh edition of the race doubtlessly promises to be a riveting one.
From October 20 to November 11, from 10am to 8pm, Les Sables d’Olonne will doubtlessly be the world’s sailing capital city. The new race village will be larger and mostly devoted to the race presentation as well as the the protection of the sea depths and shores. It will spread over more than 10,000 square metres (107,000 square feet) and will be open to all visitors.
French actor François Cluzet will be the patron of the Vendée Globe 7th edition.
