The Route du Rhum is a transatlantic single-handed yacht race, which takes place every four years in November.

 

The course is between Saint Malo, Brittany, France and Pointe-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe.

The Channel Islands have a stand in the event ‘village’ until the start of the race on 6th November. Each day they are showcasing the Islands’ produce, providing tasters and running competitions to win a gift hamper and a 2 night stay in Guernsey. Last year’s event hosted 2 million visitors over the 12 days.

Representatives on the stand have reported that it’s been a successful event so far, Laurence Main Larivière, Condor Ferries says, ‘It’s been very busy, we’ve had many enquiries about the Islands’.
