Eight cities will welcome the fleet this year. From Dunkerque to Nice, the teams will cover a total of 900 miles. With 24 inshore races, 6 offshore legs and 4 nights at sea, the rhythm will be gruelling and the race will take place over three weeks only instead of four.
The fleet will stop in Dunkirk, Dieppe, Granville and Roscoff before crossing over to the Mediterranean side, starting from Roses in Spain, Gruissan, Hyères and Nice.
The Tour is becoming a greater summer event ashore. 200,000 visitors came to the race villages to see the Tour de France à la Voile competitors in 2013. The Tour will once again meet its public this summer - sailing fans or not, it will be a great celebration in each of the stopovers.
