Final confrontation before the Vendée Globe

With just a few months to go before the Vendée Globe, the round the world candidates will be competing against each other for the very last time, in a single-handed transatlantic format.
After an exhibition race under the Statue of Liberty, which promises breathtaking images of the IMOCA boats, the forty or so sailors taking part in the race will leave New York on 29 May for Les Sables d'Olonne in Vendée.

As well as being the last qualifying race for the Vendée Globe, it is also the last event in which the skippers will rack up miles. And this race counts more than any other: for every mile sailed, the sailors log 1.5 nautic mille! At stake: the precious pass to take part in the Vendée Globe...
