JUNE

Bordeaux J'Adore - - ◆ —— Calendar —— ◆ -

4th June Soli­taire du Fi­garo URGO

A flotilla of half-tonne yachts will set sail from the Porte de La Lune this June, as they did in 2013 and 2015. Com­peti­tors will then nav­i­gate to Gi­jon, in Spain, then on to Con­car­neau and fi­nally, Dieppe. This is one of the world’s most chal­leng­ing solo sail­ing races, and the un­pre­dictable cur­rents, and the mass of drift­wood be­ing car­ried up­river on the Garonne will make con­di­tions even tougher for the com­peti­tors. www.la­soli­taire-urgo.com
