The Association ROUTE Saint-Pierre et Miquelon, in partnership with the PURE OCEAN Foundation, has decided to organise a Sailing Challenge between the ports of Saint-Pierre (Saint-Pierre et Miquelon) and Lorient (France), i.e. 2,150 nautical miles, for any racing yacht likely to cross the Atlantic Ocean.
The Challenge will be open to several categories of yachts, including Class40, for which a sailing time ranking will be proposed.
The starting line of the Challenge will be open each year for a limited time.
The first edition of the Challenge will be held between 14 and 29 July 2020.
Initiated in 1987 during the second part of the LORIENT - SAINT PIERRE - LORIENT transatlantic race reserved for monohulls, this course was covered by Eric TABARLY on the maxi "Côte d'Or" in 10 days, 1 hour and 31 minutes.
Morgane Ursault-Poupon has already announced her participation on her Class40 UP Sailing #30.
