Transat Jacques Vabre
After 20 years of existence, The Transat Jacques Vabre found its rythm and its format, it convinced the sailors and exited the public. It also confirmed its validity and its partners.

The original idea is simple: a great race is based on a historical course.

As a good coffee, this trial is a mix of tastes and aromas. Let’s start a “Transat”….expresso


1993: The creation of “La Route du Café”, a single-handed race from Le Havre to Cartagena in Colombia
1995: The Transat Jacques Vabre becomes a double-handed race
2001: New destination to Salvador de Bahia in Brazil
2009: The race stopped in Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
2013: Back in Brazil, with a new port of call: Itajaí


226 teams participated in the race since its inception

Largest number of participationin 2007 with 60 teams, including 30 “Class 40”
