Transat Jacques Vabre 2017 : Le Havre

A major transatlantic yacht race starts in Le Havre (76 Seine-Maritime, Normandie) 5 November 2017 – sponsored by a coffee company the route is a classic voyage between France and the coffee port of Itajai in Brazil:

logoAfter 20 years of existence, The Transat Jacques Vabre is a well-established international fixture. The original idea is simple: a great race based on a historical course. As a good coffee, this trial is a mix of tastes and aromas. Let’s start a “Transat”….expresso!

There’s a week of festivities with a maritime/coffee theme in the week leading up to the departure.

For more info on the Transat see Transat Jacques Vabre 2017
