LEG 3 DESCRIPTION
"After the departure in the bay of Morlaix, the figaros will evolve along the north coast of Brittany, quite steep, to get to the west of Sein. Skippers will most likely have to choose between taking the Passage du Fromveur, south of the island of Ouessant, or the Chenal du Four, along the coast of Finistère.
The Bay of Biscay can offer complex weather situations, and the finest strategists will then be able to fully express themselves. The arrival in Piriac-sur-Mer, in Loire Atlantique, will close this 2023 edition.
Yann Chateau, Race Director
Chaussée de Sein
Located off the coast of Brittany, it is known for its turbulent currents resulting from the meeting between the Atlantic and the Celtic Sea, creating a zone feared by sailors. Despite its wild beauty, the Chaussée de Sein remains a reminder for every sailor of the power of nature.
