In a week from now, the start to the Vendée Globe Regatta will be given Les Sables dOlonnes. With the Race Village closed for two days, due to Corona restrictions, there is silence over the harbor, and only the shore teams are around for the lastest checks and tune-ups. The Skippers are now be in quarantine for the next 7 days. —– Only few people will observe the start live on site, contrary to previous years, when up to 500000 spectators were present on the quays and shores. Instead, the event will be covered live on many TV channels and on the Internet ….. of course also on our www.sailing-news.com web portal! In the coming days, we shall present more participants, and gather news and information of interest for you. —– The news.
