VI – Prize-giving ceremony on 13th May in Les Sables d’Olonne
The prize-giving ceremony will be organised differently due to safety reasons and to ensure the comfort of the spectators while considering the cost of the operation. It will take place in two stages:
A prize-giving ceremony for invited guests at Les Atlantes at 7.45 p.m.
A procession of the skippers on the seafront in Les Sables d’Olonne with a fireworks display from 9.30 to 10.45 p.m.
This ceremony will mark the conclusion of the Vendée Globe and allow the public to see the skippers together for one final time.
