The Vendée Globe is a single-handed (solo) non-stop yacht race around the world without assistance. The race was founded by Philippe Jeantot in 1989, and since 1992 has taken place every four years. It is named after the Département of Vendée, in France, where the race starts and ends. The Vendée Globe is considered an extreme quest of individual endurance and the ultimate test in ocean racing.
The concept of the Vendée Globe is simple and understandable by the greatest number: shaping the world tour in solitaire, without stopping and without assistance. These three essential parameters constitute the inimitable signature of the test, its real DNA. they are clearly defined by the race instructions.
