The Antargaz Combativity Prize becomes an integral part of the Tour Voile
The Antargaz Combativity Prize remains a coveted award four years after its inception. Designed to honour team spirit, self-sacrifice and commitment, the Antargaz Combativity Prize rewards Teams that are not necessarily successful in pure sporting terms. This distinction is awarded at the end of each Act by a jury made up of journalists. Michel Desjoyeaux, a two-time winner of the Vendée Globe, has been the ambassador of the prize since it was created and serves as the chief of the jury. He and the other members of the jury scrutinise the performances and attitudes of the various Teams in both nautical stadium and coastal raid races. The name of the most combative crew is announced on the second day of each Act. Michel Desjoyeaux will also award the Antargaz Super Combativity Prize in the Grande Arrivée in Nice.
«I’m delighted to see the teams of the Tour Voile so excited about the Antargaz Combativity Prize. It is rooted in great values that are unique to our sport. In competition, you always need to give it your all, but the field of the Tour Voile is so strong that even going to the limit is sometimes not enough to shine in the classification. This Prize puts the spotlight on crews that left nothing in reserve and proved their strong commitment. Sometimes, winning the Antargaz Combativity Prize is just what a crew needs to tackle the next Act with high morale. It also brings competitors closer to the public during podium ceremonies.»
