An old world tour, solo, without stopover, without assistance with the same means as in 1968!
A unique challenge, pure and hard: the return to the golden age of sailing alone. A tribute to the traditional values ​​of sailing.

30 skippers in solo 26 registered on (4/10/17). 14 nationalities

The sailors will follow a very simple route: the boats will leave the port of Sables d'Olonne to go around the world by the five great capes and join the Sables d'Olonne again, without stopover.
