Where to see the boats?
The boats are all moored in the port of Saint-Malo, in front of the ramparts (in the Vauban and Duguay-Trouin basins) and visitors can admire them from the docks. Access to the pontoons is reserved for sponsors, technical teams…The Ultims, the giants of the seas, in short, the largest trimarans will not be “apart” in the port of Saint-Malo. They come to join in the Vauban basins all the boats of the other categories…Ocean Fifty, Imoca, Class40 and Rhum Mono and Multi.New: this year, parades will be organized.Each class of boats will have a dedicated day to parade, and make the general public discover the entire fleet. A real treat for visitors to see the boats evolve from the ramparts.
At the time of departure
