Vendee Globe

The Vendee Globe Race

The Vendee Globe is the world’s greatest single-handed, non-stop, round the world yacht race and is regarded as probably the most challenging sporting event in the world.

It takes place every four years, leaving from the famous port of  Les Sables d’Olonne in the Vendee area of France.   A test of human endurance the Vendee Globe takes approximately 3 months to complete.  The current holder for the fastest circumnavigation is Michael Desjoyeaux, a Frenchman who completed the 2008-09 Vendee Globe in 84 days and is also the only competitor to win the Vendee Globe twice, in 2000-01 and 2008-09.
