On June 15th, after all participants have been posted on their yachts, skippers will provide details and instructions for the forthcoming race. The participants will begin by moving to the regatta starting point in the town of Bandol, located on the coast of Provence between Toulon and Marseille. During this initial passage, participants will stop to enjoy wine and other local Provence specialties. The first day of the race will be intense and saturated. The skippers will train everyone involved and after training, there will be an initial mini-race on the famous yacht course of Bandol. In the evening, racers will attend the opening regatta ceremony and enjoy a concert from special musical guests. After the initial two days, the first stage of the race will be completed and that evening, the winners will rise to the top of the pedestal.
On the morning of June 17th, the fleet will leave the coast and rush to the island of Porkerol. Later that evening participants will be rewarded with wines and local delicacies at an island chateau. On June 18th, racers will reach Silver Beach (Plage d’Argent) where after dinner they will face the challenge of competing in a night race to Saint-Tropez. It will start with sunset and the entire fleet will navigate under nighttime conditions. In the morning, the race will conclude on the bay of Saint-Tropez and racers will enjoy a day of relaxation and leisure. That evening, everyone will join the gala dinner and awards ceremony for the completion of the second stage. This event will take place in an ancient fortress, The Citadel of Saint Tropez.
After the day of rest, On the morning of June 20th, racers will begin the final and most difficult stage of the regatta, the longest leg of the journey, from Saint-Tropez to Pin-Roland. That evening, all participants will have the opportunity to compete in an exciting business tournament.

We will finish the regatta at the same La Seyne Sur Mer ending location as the famous Tour de France.
