Ultra Figaro will participate to this famour race Tour de Bretagne!
The Tour de Bretagne is a race included in the Figaro Beneteau program. This race gives to the region Bretagne the opportunity to support the high level of sailing and also giving access to this world to young skippers. Opened and friendly, this race is organized every 2 years since 1997 and is the ideal meeting for best skippers on a complex and splendid route!
Crossing around a marine land, by the sea, join the north and the south of a region: What could be stronger and interesting? Nothing. This is the TOUR DE BRETAGNE. Two skippers on Beneteau Figaro, one week of race, 5 cities legs on 4 different administrative regions: the ‘’Breizh tour’’ is am active race, exciting and very engaging. The 306 skippers who already tried keep only amazing memories.
Simply a splendid route
Leave the resplendent Cote de Ganit Rose. Cross with the Cote des Abers and the Chenal du Four. Negotiate with the Iroise sea to Brest. Shelter in the port Sardibier of Douarnenez after you have crossed the impressive Cap de la Chevre. Finally, access to the famous Cote d’Amour and join the little cite of Caractere de Piriac-sur-Mer.
A complex tactical game, exciting, at every moment.
After the mainstream and local effects of L’embouchure des Abers come the terrible transition at Ouessant and Sein. Without forgetting the caprices of the Goulet de Brest, always problematic. Two entirely days in the ports of Douarnenez and Lorient? It’s obviously not to get rest! Some ‘’Banane’’ routes are planned, every kinds of them: no time for the skippers to have boring time before the final sprint which join Lorient to Piriac-sur-Mer.
