Presentation

The Bermudes 1000 Race is a single-handed race reserved for IMOCA Class monohulls and is part of the IMOCA Globe Series Championship program (coefficient 2). It was created in 2018 and won by Paul Meilhat that same year.

In 2019, a course of 2,000 nautical miles took the skippers to the Azores, before a long climb to wind around the famous Fastnet lighthouse and finally back down to the finish line in Brest. After 7 days, 17 hours and 34 minutes of racing, it was Sébastien Simon (ARKEA PAPREC) who won his first IMOCA race, ahead of Yannick Bestaven (Maître CoQ) and Giancarlo Pedote (Prysmian Group).

After a 2020 edition cancelled due to the health situation, the Bermudes 1000 Race will be back on May 8th 2021!
