Presentation

Born from the encounter between the IMOCA Class and the Lorient-based company Azimut, the Azimut Challenge, an atypical ocean racing event, aims to combine performance, innovation and strategy. Sport at the highest level of competition on the water and a great deal of conviviality on land are the hallmarks of this event, which has been an undeniable success.

Each year, the program includes speed runs, a 48-hour race and a tour of Groix. A winning combo since the event grows every year and attracts more and more competitors. 

In 2021, the Azimut Challenge will be part of the IMOCA Globe Series championship races, and will take place from September 15 to 19 in Lorient!
