The 12 teams will race for 28 days on four different seas. The 11 offshore legs will take them from the northern part of France to Marseille, going through Holland (Breskens) and Spain (Roses). With sailing celebrities joining the race such as Franck Cammas and Thomas Coville, the competition promises to be tight. The winner will be crowned in Marseille on July 28.

The event media coverage should be as good as the fleet level with a strong commitment from the TV partners. The TFV sailors will be known locally and globally.
