No public allowed in the race village prior to Vendee Globe start

Following the national lockdown measures announced by the President of the French Republic last night as part of the fight against Covid-19, the Vendée Globe Race Village will be closed to the public from Friday October 30th.

The start of the Vendée Globe will take place as planned on Sunday November 8th 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. 

The Vendée Globe 2020-2021 remains a symbol of our strong will to carry on, despite the difficulties our country is facing, and whilst of course respecting the health measures as set by the State.
