Since bursting onto the scene 42 years ago, the Tour Voile has grown to become one of the major events on the sailing calendar. Every year in July, the Tour brings together male and female racers from France and abroad to compete in two types of events: nautical stadium and coastal raid courses.

Sailors from all classes of the sport spend 17 days locked in a fierce battle on seven different bodies of water to win the great summer classic that crowns the most well-rounded among them.
