    La Solitaire du Figaro Race

    A few miles far from the D-Day 70th celebrations but outside the access perimeter to the same celebrations, during this 6th june, 2014 the other coastal towns of Calvados lived like a normal Friday, and perhaps more quietly than during a normal Friday...

    Arriving in Deauville, turning right after the beach going towards the port, the walker discovered a completely different atmosphere, made of colors and advertisements. Here was a party, a show of sailboats : Sunday, June 8th, Deauville would rush to the Channel thirty-eight seafarers for the Solitaire du Figaro race.

    This race, the 45th edition, takes place in four steps. In 2014 sailboats go from Deauville to Plymouth, Roscoff, Les Sables d'Olonne and Cherbourg. All vessels are monotypes and the competitor is alone on his boat. Departure at 1 pm, Paris time.
