From their entrance in Groix Island currents to their finish line near Port Louis Citadelle, follow the last moments of this leg live ! 



Saturday June 13th: Pro-Am Regattas  1 & 2


These regattas are the occasion for the Volvo Ocean Race to take on board journalists, VIPS and other guests who will discover the excitments  of sailing and competiting on the water a few inches away one from the other. Guests will be allowed to help out the sailing crew, using winches, haul the sails or even holding the helm !
Two regattas are scheduled at 12.30pm and 1.30 pm.



Sunday June 14th : In Port Regatta

2pm : Serious things begin ! This In-port Race takes place over an hour and is the occasion of an intense battle. In-Port points although they do not enter into account for the final ranking, can make a difference in case of ex-aequo boats.  This regatta is a great show for visitors, but also a way to evaluate strenghs and state of minds among competitors. Impress your opponent is always a good way to start the very last leg of the Race.




Monday June 15th : Pro-Am Regatta 3


3pm : Third Pro-Am Regatta



Tuesday June 16th : The Big Departure !


Don’t miss this last opportunity to observe the fleet before they head out for Goteborg in Sweden. This will be the last leg of this eight month adventure.



3 pm: boats leave the pontoons

5 pm: start of leg 8
