More than just another sporting event, world-renowned yacht race the Transat Jacques Vabre always attracts a great deal of media attention. The Race Village will be open for ten days, creating a festive atmosphere and drawing in the crowds, providing a unique setting for your next corporate event!
Participants in this great challenge will cover over 9,000km, leaving from Le Havre in Normandy, France’s leading port in terms of foreign trade, situated on the Seine estuary.
Created in 1993 by the town of Le Havre and the Jacques Vabre coffee brand, La Transat Jacques Vabre Normandie Le Havre retraces the historic coffee route between the first coffee-trading port in France and the most beautiful coffee-producing lands. In 2020, the Normandy Region joined the team as the third partner helping to put on the race.
This legendary sailing race has found a new lease of life, so make the most of the event’s reputation to share your values and inspire, unite and motivate your teams and/or clients.
VIP services offering tailor-made quality experiences can be organised during the period the Race Village is open and when the yachts set out, with spaces and/or boats available for private hire.
