49th Solitaire URGO Le Figaro

The making of legends

The most highly-prized yacht race in France !

A single-handed, unaided yacht race in stages, raced on Figaro Beneteau and Figaro 2 one designs
since 2003. 

2018 will be special in many respects! 

First, because the skippers will be racing on the Figaro Beneteau 2 for the last time, to give way to its successor, the Figaro BENETEAU 3, in 2019.

Secondly, because the final of the Solitaire will be held in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, Beneteau’s homeland.

This town has already hosted Solitaire stages on several occasions and is delighted to organise the last stage for the first time.


This great offshore race will start in Le Havre on 26 August 2018 and will end around 14 September in Saint Gilles Croix de Vie.
