A shortened coastal course for the start on Sunday
The start of the 16th edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre Normandie Le Havre will take place at 1305hrs local time on Sunday. The ULTIM will be the first to set sail with the three other classes following at 12-minute intervals until 1341hrs for the Class40 boats.
Considering the weather conditions that are forecast, the Etretat buoy has been removed and the coastal course shortened. The boats will still sail along the coast allowing spectators to see off the 95 pairs of sailors before they head off out to sea.
