Following a successful first edition in 2020, Route Saint-Pierre & Miquelon and Pure Ocean will organize the second edition of the Route Saint-Pierre Lorient – Pure Ocean Challenge in 2021. The starting line will be open from June 13-27.
The Route Saint-Pierre Lorient – Pure Ocean Challenge is a sailing challenge across the Atlantic, between Saint-Pierre & Miquelon and Lorient, open to all types of sailboats and any floating support driven by the wind, with several goals:
- beat the reference times
- raise public awareness about the ocean and the need to protect it
- collect useful data for scientific studies for the protection of the ocean
- raise funds for ocean research
The vocation is to be an “other” race, focused on the urgency to save the ocean and on the means to achieve it.
