Bordeaux, the capital of great wines and fine cuisine in southwest France, will host one of the world's greatest yacht races: the "Solitaire Urgo Le Figaro" in the setting of the "Bordeaux River Festival".

Let's go for a new edition of Bordeaux Fête le Fleuve. This great festive event attracts lovers Garonne and its estuary every odd year, alternating with the Bordeaux Wine Festival.

The program includes water sports, rides on the river, boat exhibitions, concerts and fireworks!

Bordeaux Fête le Fleuve will host again this year, the start of La Solitaire du Figaro, one of the greatest solo sailing races by step! The organizers of this race had been seduced by the beauty of the Port of the Moon but also by the sporting challenge.

This race, which is known as the unofficial world championship of solo offshore sailing, will set sail on 4 June 2017 from Bordeaux under a new name, La Solitaire Urgo Le Figaro.

It is a highly significant occasion for the second time in the race's history, the skippers will leave from the heart of a city.

For 10 days, the Bordeaux waterfront will be swarming with experienced yachtsmen and sailing enthusiasts: excitement and atmosphere guaranteed!

See you on the Bordeaux quais when the boats arrive!

In 2013 and 2015, hundreds of thousands of people came to watch with great admiration the 45 sailboats and first-class ocean racers. A true popular success deserved tris, from 25.05 to 04.06!

Fearless adventurers will set sail on the world’s nicest solo transatlantic race from Bordeaux!
